Christmas with the Georgians at Berrington
It’s that time of year once again when we invite you to enjoy Christmas in true Georgian style. So why not step back in time and indulge in some very Georgian festivities?
We are putting up the famous puddings, preparing our wreaths and getting ready for some music, carriage rides and entertainment as a very Georgian Christmas comes to Berrington.
Once again we are taking you back to the Georgian era and revealing the Georgians idea of a Christmas. There will be carriage rides, traditional Christmas decorations and our Servants Quarters will be open once again.
After having experienced the eighteenth century gentry’s festivities, you can step down below into the Servants Quarters. Witness the reality of how the servants made the world of extravagance above come to life and see how they lived.
‘Christmas with the Georgians’ will be held each weekend throughout the festive period. This is from Saturday 17 November to Sunday 23 December from 11am to 4pm. As we are opening our Servant's Quarters however, the first floor of the mansion will be closed to visitors. We apologise for any inconvenience that this may cause.

Wreath making with the Head Gardener
Saturday 24 and Sunday 25 November, 11am to 3pm
Adorn your door with something truly special this Christmas as our Head Gardener shows you how to make a personalised Christmas wreath. Find out more on the ‘What’s On’ page.
Such re-enactments of the Georgian lifestyle can only happen 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.
Normal admission applies, additional costs for the carriages.
