Christmas with the Georgians

The Georgians loved the festive season and we're sure you do to. So come and see all that we have on offer to get you into the festive mood.

  • Booking not needed
  • Free event (admission applies)

Join us on November and December weekends before Christmas to celebrate Christmas eighteenth-century style. See the traditions enjoyed by the gentry of a grand mansion during this period. The ground floor will be dressed for the occasion. You can even arrive at Berrington in true style in December in a horse and carriage.

After having seen the way of life of the gentry, go downstairs to see the hustle and bustle of servant life whilst the Lord's and ladies of the house enjoyed the party.

What is Gift Aid?

Most of our places run the Gift Aid on Entry scheme at their admission points. Under this scheme, if you're not a member you have the choice of two entry tickets:

  • Gift Aid Admission or
  • Standard admission

If the place runs Gift Aid on Entry, we'll offer you the Gift Aid Admission prices. But it's entirely up to you which ticket you choose. If you want the Standard Admission instead, just let us know when you come to pay.

Gift Aid Admission includes a 10 per cent or more voluntary donation. Gift Aid Admissions let us reclaim tax on the whole amount paid* — an extra 25 per cent — potentially a very significant boost to our places' funds.

An extra £1 paid under the scheme can be worth over £3 to the National Trust as shown below: Payment of the additional percentage donation is entirely voluntary, so if you prefer to pay the standard admission please advise our reception staff at the till point.

  Gift Aid Standard
Amount paid by visitor £11.00 £10.00
Tax refund from Government* £2.75 £0.00
Total received by the National Trust £13.75 £10.00

 

*Gift Aid donations must be supported by a valid Gift Aid declaration and a Gift Aid declaration can only cover donations made by an individual for him/herself or for him/herself and members of his/her family.
