The house at Christmas
Tyntesfield House awaits you with a new visitor route filled with beautiful handmade decorations and Christmas trees bringing a festive cheer. Tickets are available on the day and cannot be booked in advance.
- Booking not needed
- Free event (admission applies)
Fancy a visit to see the wonderful decorations and soak up the Victorian atmosphere inside the house?
This year we are releasing tickets to enter the house on the day, and they cannot be booked in advance.
Tickets will be available from a signposted station at Home farm near the Cowbarn shop and café (every day from 2nd December to 2nd January except Tuesdays and Wednesdays and 24th and 25th December).
At 10.45 we will release tickets for house entry between 11 and 12.
At 11.45 we will release tickets for house entry between 12 and 1.
At 12.45 we will release tickets for house entry between 1 and 2.30.
The house at Christmas has historically been very popular with visitors, coming to see the wonderful decorations and enjoy the Victorian atmosphere. To keep all our visitors as well as the house and historic collection safe, there is a limit on how many people we can fit inside the building.
We anticipate that these tickets will be very popular and may sell out very quickly, especially on weekends and during the school holidays. We’re sorry for any disappointment but we cannot make more tickets available once they are all gone. There will be no tickets available to book in advance.
Tickets to the house are at no extra cost – members go free and non-members must pay normal admission.

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
- Standard Admission
If the place runs Gift Aid on Entry, we'll offer you a clear choice between the Gift Aid Admission prices and the Standard Admission prices at the admission point. It's entirely up to you which ticket you choose.
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:
|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|

We are operating pay and display via cash or PayByPhone, in our car park where car park charges will apply for non-members (£3). National Trust members park for free.
