Christmas evenings at Blickling

There's nothing quite like having a wander around the house and gardens after hours when visitors have gone home. We're giving you the opportunity to enjoy an exclusive evening with friends and family, without all the crowds.

A red bauble on a Christmas tree

28 November - 1 December | 7-9pm

Sparkling lights

The gates will be open from 5:30pm for you to start your evening, but the house will not be open until 7pm, giving you plenty of time to soak up the atmosphere. 

Enjoy the beautiful surroundings with a walk around the lit garden as darkness falls.  With lights sparkling on the parterre, trees lit up in festive colours and 24 Christmas trees lining Temple Walk, the magic of Christmas will start to feel real.

A spot of shopping

You'll have plenty of time for some Christmas shopping.  Wander through our gallery of shops with a range of National Trust gifts as well as local art and crafts from the Norfolk Craft Guild, the North Norfolk Organisation for Visual Artists and the Norfolk Creative and Contemporary Artists.  

Fizz and canapes

The house will open at 7pm and you'll be able to wander through at your own pace, enjoying the Art Noveau theme, creatively decorated by our team of volunteers.

Relax in the Long Gallery with a glass of fizz and canapes as you enjoy the local barbershop sounds from the Sam Smith Singers.
