Erddig winter toy trail

A frosty winter's day at Erddig

Discover the magic of play on our new winter toy trail. Take a closer look at the Yorke family's toy collection and share in a land of wonder created by two small boys who would one day be the last Squires of Erddig.

Discover the magic of play

We've chosen some of our favourite toys in the historic collection and we're using new and imaginative ways to share them with you as you explore Erddig's 12.5-acre walled gardens.

Follow our trail, take a closer look at the traditional toys and join us for some fun and games in the garden.

This new trail which runs until 6 January will uncover some of the Yorke's most interesting toys and their stories.

Upstairs and downstairs

From 1 to 31 December you can enter the house to warm yourself by the fire, the scents of mulled wine and festive cooking will fill the air as the house prepares for the festivities.

Venture upstairs into the heart of the Yorke family celebrations, where our Entrance Hall will be decorated as it would have been over 100 years ago with a magical Christmas tree, stockings and gifts.
