All of the fan-favourites have returned and are shining bright, including the eight-metre-tall Mega Christmas tree, Candy Land, Walk-Through Bauble, Around the World, Princess Castle and the Giant Teddy display.

Plus, the romantic Lovers Corner, Snowy the Snowman, Giant Castle and more sparkly trees!
