Tinsel and Tweed at Anglesey Abbey

The dining table set for Christmas at Anglesey Abbey

Come and join us as we create Christmas in the country; inspired by the life of Lord Fairhaven and his staff in the 1960s. Back for its second year 'Tinsel and Tweed' will give you an opportunity to kick start your festive season. Find out more about the event and how to book tickets.

22 November - 2 January 

9.30am - 4pm (last entry to the estate at 3pm)

Book 'Tinsel and Tweed' tickets

A decorated house

10am - 3pm (last entry to the house at 2pm) 

The ground floor of the house will be fully dressed for Christmas. Don't miss the showstopper tree in the Tapestry Hall, a perfect spot to stop and take photos! The dining table will be dressed with foliage and food, and the domestic wing will give a sense of everyone getting ready for Christmas. There will also be an opportunity for you to help us by creating and adding to the decorations in some areas.
