Dunster by Candlelight….Somerset’s (Candle) Light Switch On…

For 30 years, the first weekend in December sees the beautiful medieval village of Dunster welcoming the festive season ‘by Candlelight’.  Over two evenings, Dunster’s historic streets are closed to cars, street lights are replaced with lanterns and candles light the windows of houses and shops…the effect is magical.

Numerous park and ride routes ferry visitors into Dunster where welcoming shops are softly lit and beautifully decorated for Christmas shopping, pubs and restaurants offer indulgent treats of hot chocolate or steaming mulled wine and traditional street performers entertain the crowds.

We thoroughly enjoyed our visit, soaking up Dunster’s medieval history brought to life by candlelight, thank you Dunster!
