Between Christmas and New Year me and Ellie were in need of a walk to burn off some of the Christmas calories and some fresh air to blow away being indoors for a few days. The Leeds Magical Lantern Festival was just the place to go. The Magical Lantern Festival has a few different venues around the UK, but the Roundhay Park Leeds is the closest to us.
The Leeds Magical Lantern Festival
The Christmas theme lantern festival illuminates Roundhay Parks grounds with hand sculpted lanterns.
We got the Leeds Magical Lantern Festival at about 7pm so it was really dark and the perfect time to see the lanterns.
You follow a set walk around Roundhay Park and the walkways are lined with illuminated displays.
As well as Christmasy theme displays there is an oriental section. The displays here are just beautiful. We love the huge life size Chinese temple and Chinese dragon.
My favourite lanterns are the flower displays. They are just super pretty and girly.
A slow walk around the Leeds Magical Lantern Festival and stopping for a look at each display takes around an hour.
The Leeds Magical Lantern Festival – final thoughts
I got our tickets from Wowcher so they were half price at £6. For £6 I was quite happy with the festival. But had I have paid full price that would seem expensive for what it is.
The Magical Lantern Festival has unfortunately finished for the year but will be back next winter. As long as we can get a deal on tickets it is something we will go to again.
I would love to try make a trip to the London one though as I’m sure that must be bigger and better.
Did you go to the Magical Lantern Festival this year? Have you ever been to anything like this?
