IT'S BACK... Bournemouth's Christmas Tree Wonderland returns today.

The trail, which features 100 trees throughout the town centre, launched for the first time last year. It will be in place until Thursday, January 2.

It lines a route from the illuminated big wheel at Pier Approach through the Lower Gardens to the Alpine Market in the Square.

The attraction features themed trees from cities around the world, including Bethlehem, St Petersburg and Warsaw. There will also be a 'canopy of cascading lights' over Pine Tree Walk.

Other features include a 'polar walk' and a Santa’s sleigh at the new Smuggler's Cove Adventure Golf at Pier Approach.

There will also be a huge golden reindeer outside Beales. Santa’s grotto can also be found at the department store.

On December 19, a fireworks display will take place off Bournemouth Pier.

The outdoor ice rink will also be open in the Lower Gardens.
