Since my post ‘here we are in November’ we have been getting so busy. With getting ready for Christmas and getting my business up and running, it has been chaos. It’s no surprise that we were super excited to start the festive trips. Keydells nurseries were no exception.
When it comes to Christmas, Garden Centres, are one of the most popular places to visit. As most centres make a special effort for the Christmas season.
Keydell is a nursery (garden centre) in Horndean, Hampshire. It is a lovely place to visit at any time of the year. However, we do make a special annual trip there for a Christmasy family day.
So what is the Keydells woodland walk?
Keydell’s woodland walk is a beautiful Christmas walk around with so much to look at all around you. The staff at keydell should be so proud of what they have created.
The woodland walk itself is under £5 per person, and well worth the money to get in at any age. You can find the ticket prices on their website here.
Each area is themed so differently to the next. It is very obvious how much effort the staff have gone into these displays. The sheer amount of detail, and imaginative stories these scenes tell.
Adorable characters that sing and move, the smell of tinsel, pretty tinkering lights, glitter. Everything makes this room feel festive. It is impossible not to be sucked into the Christmas excitement.
You can tell how popular the nursey is at this time of year. We were eager and took our trip on the 23rd of November. The whole place was already busy with plenty of people walking around seeing the magic of Keydell at Christmas.
If you are thinking about taking a trip to Keydells, you need to have your camera ready. There are so many photo opportunities on the walk. For example, a model Santa where you can sit on his lap. Cute right?
Spending almost an hour around the trail. That is not all though…
We spent another hour looking at all the beautiful Christmas decorations that Keydell have available to buy in-store. There are literally thousands of ornaments, light sets and Christmasy decor. It’s OK. We managed not to spend too much money, but that was so hard. I could picture so many of the decks making the house look pretty.
We really had such a lovely day! I would love to hear if you have had an experience visiting Keydell.
Or do you know somewhere else that is well worth the journey to go and see Christmas magic!
