Christmas traditions on your doorstep

Across London and the south east our places are ready for this special time of year. They're embracing Christmas traditions old and new.

Father Christmas is visiting our country houses, gardens and even our castle. Fires are alight. Wreaths hung. Halls decked. Carols are being sung. And there's lots and lots of mince pies.

Festive walks

If you want to escape the festive hype, burn off those mince pies, or just get out of the house, then a winter's walk could be just the ticket.

From coast to countryside, gardens to parks; in London and the south east we’ve got lots of places to enjoy fresh air and great views. And many will be open from Boxing Day, along with tea-rooms for some warming treats.

House & buildings by county

In London and the south east we look after a castle, a lighthouse, country mansions, cottages and even a Maori meeting house. What will you find to inspire you?

Gardens & parks by county

Landscapes designed by Capability Brown, plots brimming with fruits and veg, and gardens planted with year-round colour; we care for the lot in London and the south east.

Coast & countryside by county

The wild White Cliffs of Dover and the Seven Sisters, vast areas of heathland, acres of ancient woodland full, and the wildlife-rich New Forest, we have a hand in keeping all of these places special.
