Christmas in the house

The Dining Room at Belton, ready for a Christmas feast

See the Marble Hall set as it once was for Christmas past, while the conservation team work hard to complete their winter jobs.

This Christmas the marble hall will be transformed back in time to the living room that was once used by the Brownlow family. The main rooms of the mansion are put to bed for winter, but the Marble Hall will be looking resplendent with festive decorations.

Being open throughout the busy spring, summer and autumn months means there’s lots to do when the big winter clean gets underway. This time of year allows the house conservation team to thoroughly clean and conserve everything from furniture and pottery to plasterwork and floors.
