Christmas is coming to Croome
This article refers to Christmas 2019 and will be updated in due course for 2020. From a gentle stroll through frosty parkland to a warming drink and mince pie in the tearoom; a chat with Father Christmas in the house to a musical performance in the church – discover what Croome has in store this Christmas!
Come in from the cold and warm yourself in front of an open fire before heading off to explore the house, taking in the beautiful festive decorations.
Father Christmas and his elves will be popping into Croome again this December. Catch them at this very busy time of year…
Note: We are not having a traditional 'meet Father Christmas' event at Croome. Instead he will be walking around the house, with his elves, giving families the opportunity to say hello to him, so no booking required.
Don’t forget to send your letter to the North Pole too! Drop into our activity room throughout December and pop your letter into our magical post box.
Get outdoors this winter
Enjoy our family trail, with festive twist.
Note: Croome is closed Christmas Eve and Christmas Day
Along the way, take a gentle stroll to the Rotunda and take in fantastic views across the park towards the Malvern Hills. Make sure to add your wish for the coming year to our wishing tree before you leave.
