It’s that time of year once again when we invite you to Berrington Hall to celebrate the festive period in true Georgian fashion. We are putting up the famous puddings, preparing our wreaths and getting the carriages ready as a very Georgian Christmas comes to Berrington.

Once again we are taking you back to the Georgian era and revealing how they enjoyed Christmas. See the mansion styled as if it was a winters evening and decorated with traditional yule logs, garlands and candles.

As well as the decorations in the mansion there will be an outdoor childrens trail and a seasonal menu in the tea-room.

Traditional decorations will be used to 'deck the hall'

Firstly you have to step below stair to the Servant's Quarters to get a sense of how the servants would have prepared for the season and see how they lived. Then, as you head up the servants stairway, you will enter into the heart of the merriment in the centre of the house. You can experience the lavish lifestyle of the gentry and see their decorations for Christmas.

The celebrations will be on each weekend throughout the festive period. This is from Saturday 18 November to Sunday 17 December from 11am to 4pm. We will then also be open from Monday 18 December to Saturday 23 December.

Celebrations of traditions such as these are only able to come to life thanks to all of our visitor’s generous donations and money spent here at Berrington over the year. Every part of what you do here helps the past come to life and keeps Berrington here for ever, for everyone.

Maybe even indulge in a traditional treat
