Christmas at Polesden Lacey is a magical time to visit, with the house and grounds prepared for Christmas. Here are some of the highlights:

    Christmas festivities in the house

     Great Hall and Christmas tree

    Saturdays and Sundays from 30 Nov to 22 Dec  11am-4pm.

    We've dressed the house especially for three decades of Christmas this year. You might catch Edward VII, George V and George VI wandering around the house and you'll be able to see gifts given to Mrs Greville by the kings. In the Billiard room, listen to George V deliver the first Christmas speech from 1932.

    View our special exhibition of religious paintings, including The adoration of the Magi (c. 1330-1410) by Bartolomeo di Fredi.
