Hi there everyone,
I moved to West London when I was 5, so my earliest memories pretty much revolve around my life in West London. One of my earliest memories is going to the Garden shop in Syon Park with my family every summer. It was a fairly big day out as it would involve my grandparents heading up from Reading to travel with us and pick out what would be planted for that year. Due to this Syon Park has meant a lot to me over the years. 10 years later, when I turned 15, Syon Park introduced a winter memory for me. In the Enchanted Woodland.
The Enchanted Woodland is held from early November until Early December every night. The 200 year old building Syon House, was the second home of the Duke of Northumberland and is lit up by thousands upon thousands of fairy lights in festive colours to get you all ready for the wintery christmas months.
The plants inside the Great Conservatory at Syon Park also get lit up, with their shadows being thrown onto the ceiling and walls, looming along the walk creating even more of an atmosphere.
The Enchanted Woodland at Syon Park may have only been around for just over 10 years, but for many of us it already holds tradition and memories that can be shared and passed down by generation. I can’t wait to visit this year and take my family. It’s such a nice way to celebrate the beginning of christmas and the winter season.
Have you had a chance to visit the Enchanted Woodland at Syon Park? Do you have any family traditions which sum up christmas for you and your loved ones? Let me know in the comments below. I love hearing from you guys.
