Avebury Manor 'Christmas in colours'

Please note new date: 20 November - 31 December (Thursdays-Sundays only - closed 24-26 Dec)

Each of the rooms in Avebury Manor will be decorated in a different colour.  Enjoy the russet reds and oranges of the Tudor Parlour, see the beautiful blue and purple handmade peacock that sits at the head of the table in the Georgian Dining Room, the evergreen shades in the Billard Room and many more discoveries as you journey through the ages.

There's a family area in the Withdrawing Room with children’s toys and stories under a rainbow tree. There will also be a ‘tree of hope’ where visitors can add their wish for the new year. 

Avebury Manor is open Thu-Sun during this period (subject to volunteer availability).  We advise that you ring 01672 539250 before travelling.
