Echoes of Calke's Christmas past
As darkness falls you'll see Calke in all its twinkling glory. Follow the lanterns to find the candle-lit church, explore the tunnels and catch a glimpse of the house in a festive Christmas light. Don't forget to wander through the sparkling Pleasure Grounds, which look beautiful at this time of year.
This event takes places at weekends only, on the following dates: 3, 4, 10, 11, 17 and 18 December.

If you've been out for a wintery walk around the estate, why not treat yourself to a lovely mince pie and a warming coffee?
