A stunning festive lights trail has teased what visitors can expect after it was tipped one of the UK’s best, despite never having taken place before.

The Northern Lights trail – not to be confused with the Aurora Borealis – will light up Newcastle’s Leazes Park later this month.

Illuminations will light up woodland glades, the park’s statues, and the lake around a one-mile route.

The trail is so hotly tipped it was named one of the best in the country by Guardian Travel last month, despite the fact the event has never ran before.

And now organisers have teased just some of displays to be dotted around the park as they released the full map for the event.

Hundreds of floating balls will cover the surface of the lake at the centre of the park, synchronised to music creating a stunning display.

It comes as Leazes Park celebrates its 150th anniversary.

Marian Chapman, Enterprise Director at Urban Green Newcastle, the charity that manages and cares for Newcastle’s parks and allotments, said: “December 2023 marks 150 years since Leazes Park, the city’s first public park, opened to the people of Newcastle.

"Northern Lights will be a spectacular way to commemorate this landmark anniversary and celebrate one of the city’s oldest and most treasured green spaces."
