Dust off your finest frock and join us for an eighteenth-century Christmas with the Harley's at Berrington.

Georgian Celebrations

Did you know that many of our current traditions at Christmas time stem from the Victorian and Georgian era? Every weekend from Saturday 18 November to Sunday 17 December,  and daily from Monday 18 to Sunday 31 December 11am to 4pm, we're recreating some of the traditions enjoyed by the gentry when the house was built.

The ground floor of the mansion will be lit as if it were an evening and you can see the decorations, decorative table laying and some of the costumes they might have worn during these celebrations. In the mansion you can get a sense of the elegance of a Georgian Chirstmas.

As well as all of this however, explore and experience the hustle and bustle of 'below stairs' as the servants are busy preparing and providing for a Christmas feast upstairs. Take a step back as you are surrounded by preparations and get a taste of how the servants would have experienced Christmas.

Horse and Carriages

You can arrive and depart in style with the 2 horse, eighteenth-century carriage which awaits your custom outside the hall to take the family on a ride around the grounds. If you fancy getting into the spirit of Christmas, why not come in your best Georgian garments to enjoy free entry for the day.
