*Tickets to visit the Mansion at Christmas available to book now*

Many people visit Attingham each year as part of their Christmas traditions – to see the Mansion, and often, to visit Father Christmas while he’s here. We want to keep Christmas at Attingham special not just for this December, or even next December, but for many more to come.

By spreading visits throughout the day we’re aiming to offer everybody coming time to enjoy each festively decorated room at their own pace, and with enough space to do so. It will also help us to care for the collection and interior of the Grade I listed Mansion at this time of year by preventing overcrowding. We’ve built in extra capacity for visitors across December but popular days may reach this limit and become ‘Fully Booked’.

Thank you for your support, with your help we’re able to keep Attingham Christmas magical for ever, for everyone.  

Below you'll find more information about how pre-booked tickets will work at Attingham this December and a link to book your tickets (live from mid-September).

How long will it take to visit the Mansion?

Once inside the Mansion there is no time restriction on how long you may visit for, provided you enter between the times on your ticket. E.g. you have booked to visit the Mansion between 12pm and 2pm  - you can enter the Mansion at any time within that 2 hour period and visit at your own pace. Please note the Mansion will close at 4pm, and you will not be able to re-enter the Mansion again unless it is within your timed entry session.

Visits to the Mansion at Christmas take anything from 45 minutes to 1½ hours.

Booking to see Father Christmas when you visit?

Father Christmas visits are booked seperately to the Mansion visits (there is an additional charge to see Father Christmas).

if you'd like to visit Father Christmas as welll as the Mansion please book these seperately. We strongly advise you to book your Father Christmas visit first before you book for the Mansion as Father Christmas tickets can sell out very quickly. 

Father Christmas will be at Attingham Park daily from Saturday 30 November to Monday 23 December. Times may vary,  and all tickets must be pre-booked.

Visiting the outdoors only?

There is no need to book a ticket for entry to the parkland, Walled Garden, and the  facilities in the Stables Courtyard. Visits to anywhere on site except the Mansion remain on a free-flow basis, there is no need to book if you are not planning on visiting the Mansion.
