A visit to this fascinating country house at Christmas is the perfect chance to lift your spirits for the festive season ahead.

Meander upstairs and downstairs through 30 evocative rooms filled with fine art and furniture that will be transformed with seasonal floral displays, stunning decorations and garlands. Children can experience the magic of the hall as they search for the Christmas crackers hidden in each room. The hall is open daily 11am to 4pm during our Christmas opening.

Or why not experience a magical evening visit from 7pm on Friday 1st December and see the hall at its twinkling best with mulled wine and mince pies served on arrival and a festive sing-a-along around the Christmas Tree in the Great Hall at the end of the evening.
