Polesden lacey snow“Sleigh bells ring, are you listening?” It’s the quintessential Christmas scene – a beautiful sleigh pulled by reindeer.

Polesden lacey carriage ridesAlthough the team at Polesden Lacey haven’t been able to rustle up a few reindeer, they have saddled up their trusty horse team, who will be donning antlers and pulling carriages around the park until 20th December.

At this time of year, the parkland takes on a paired-down beauty and the gardening team are still hard at work preparing for next year’s floral displays, making wreaths and gathering greenery for the house, too.
