Christmas in and around West Sussex 

All across Sussex we are bringing festive traditions to life at our country houses, atmospheric gardens and wintery countryside. Share in the festive spirit at Nymans, Standen, Petworth, Uppark, Alfriston Clergy House and Sheffield Park. New for 2019 is a festive exhibition at Nymans of illustrations by Quentin Blake, with a chorus line of froggy sculptures in the garden.
