Christmas comes to Baddesley Clinton

We always decorate the house for Christmas, and this year we are doing it in style – with our own special twist.

We’ll be doing it with dried flowers! All summer long our gardeners, staff, volunteers and visitors have been collecting flowers which have been hung up to dry and now we're busy making them into beautiful wreaths, swags and posies to decorate the house. You'll be able to see the results from December 1 to January 1. Throughout the festive season join us for mincemeat making in the kitchen on selected dates and warm up in front of a crackling fire in the Great Hall.
