Christmas with the Georgians at Berrington

Horse and carriage going down the carriage way

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.
