Christmas with the Georgians at Berrington
Please note Berrington Hall is now in tier 3 and the mansion is closed until further notice. The parkland and gardens are open for walking and we are serving a limited take away food and beverage offer. Please follow government guidelines on travel between tiers. It’s that time of year once again when we invite you to enjoy Christmas in true eighteenth century style. So why not step back in time and indulge in some very Georgian festivities? You can see the mansion decorated on weekends only from Saturday 5 December to Sunday 20 December and every day from Monday 21 to Wednesday 23 December and Sunday 27 December to Sunday 3 January 2021.
Once again, we're taking you back to the Georgian era this Christmas; discover traditional decorations, atmospheric evening lighting, fireplaces brimming with dried flowers, a candlelit dining table, magnificent Christmas trees and a spectacular take on a sack back court dress from the later part of the eighteenth century which takes centre stage in the Staircase Hall.
Our Christmas weekends run from Saturday 5 December to Sunday 20 December and every day from Monday 21 to Wednesday 23 December and Sunday 27 December to Sunday 3 January 2021.

Once you've explored the mansion, head outdoors to enjoy frosty winter walks down to the lake, build your best den in the den building area and pose for a photo with our famous yew ball puddings. Don't forget to follow our Christmassy trail around the gardens and find out how the Georgians would have celebrated the festive season. This trail is free and won't include a prize.
Pop into the Stables cafe for your favourite takeaway drinks and snacks, including hot chocolate, sandwiches and warming one-pots. Don't forget to try the festive menu, which includes millionaire hot chocolate, gingerbread muffins and snowball chocolate fudge cake.
To avoid disappointment please book your visit to Berrington Hall in advance, especially at busier times such as weekends and bank holidays. If you do not book we cannot guarantee admission. Check out the What's On page for more details.
