Christmas wrapped up at Dunham Massey...

Christmas is coming to Dunham Massey, and we've got plenty for you to do during this festive season.

Rudolph with his nose so bright has suddenly vanished out of sight!

Runaway Rudolph... 

18 Nov –2 Jan, 10.30am-3pm. Our fallow deer’s noses are brownish and tiny, but Rudolph’s is red, very large and quite shiny. A herd of magical deer return to Dunham this Christmas. Can you find all eight to uncover a secret? Grab a map and explore the park and garden to find all eight of the life-size cut out creations. £2 per map. Normal admission applies.

Snowdrops in the Garden at Dunham Massey

Winter Garden... 

Forget hibernating until spring, our Winter Garden is alive with colour as the carpets of snowdrops, cyclamen and blue winter irises develop over the next few weeks – it’s the perfect place for a frosty walk with friends and family. There's always something growing in the garden, so each time you visit, there's something new!

Christmas at Dunham Massey: the magical, after-dark, illuminated trail... 

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas when the trees and formal gardens of Dunham Massey are all aglow for a magical after-dark experience. In partnership with Raymond Gubbay Limited, Dunham Massey will be transformed into a winter wonderland this December– a one mile sparkling path winding through the historic woodland with plenty of surprises along the way.

Don’t let the cold put you off…

If you’d rather be outdoors and pull on your winter woollies, and get some colour in your cheeks with a walk around the estate – did you know that you’re less likely to argue during Christmas time if you go on a walk? So there’s no excuses!
