Christmas at Dyffryn Gardens
Join the festivities at Dyffryn over the holidays as we celebrate traditions past and present with a new magical 12 Days of Christmas display and family fun events over the winter season.
12 Days of Christmas Trail
18 November - 7 January, 10am - 4pm (Last entry 3pm)
Closed 25 and 26 December
The popular winter trail is back, but with a difference. A new magical display will be placed around the gardens bringing the much loved Christmas carol to life.
Take a 12 Days of Christmas trail sheet and sing your way around the gardens as you marvel at the new family fun display.
Our launch weekend on 18th and 19th November is set to be an extra festive experience, so see what magical memories you will make this winter season with the National Trust.
Father Christmas and his Elves
Father Christmas is kindly taking time away from his busy schedule with a few of his helpers to meet lots of boys and girls in Dyffryn House.
Would you like to share your Christmas wish list with the special man in red in person? Make sure to book your visit in advance on one of the dates available to avoid disappointment.
- Dates and booking information released soon
As well as helping Father Christmas, the elves will be lending a hand in our cafes, serving delicious festive treats and having some fun along the way.
Keep an eye out for more information regarding our Breakfast with the Elves and a special Christmas Party with the Elves.
Soak up the festive spirit
Escape the tinsel-decked chaos of the high street and admire the beautifully adorned Dyffryn House with its Christmas trees, garlands and twinkling lights.
You can pick out a few special Christmas presents for loved ones from our Gift Shop, which will also be open until 7:45pm for a spot of late night shopping on the evening of our popular Christmas concert on 8 December.
We are also offering you the chance to learn a new skill this festive season with a cake decorating class in our garden café. Alongside our talented team, you will be able to make your own creative masterpiece and take it home to impress friends and family.
