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 returns to Berrington.
Once again we are taking you back to the Georgian era this 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 16 November to Sunday 22 December from 11am to 4pm. As we're opening our Servants' Quarters, the first floor of the mansion will be closed to visitors. We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.

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.
