Getting ready for Christmas

Belton House covered in snow on a clear winter's day

This Christmas, join us to celebrate best-loved traditions and create some new ones of your own.

Belton will be at its Christmas best from Saturday 24 November. Help to grow the garland of greenery in the stableyard or make a Christmas wish when you hang a bauble on the wish tree when you come to see the festive shop window displays.

Away from it all

If it’s an escape you’re looking for, there are formal gardens, pleasure grounds and 1300 acres of parkland to explore. Open every day throughout winter, except Christmas day.
