Victorian Christmas in the house

Daily from 27 Nov to 23 Dec and then from 26 Dec to 2 Jan, 11am-3pm. With the 17th-century family home luxuriously decorated for a Victorian Christmas, expect Christmas trees galore dripping with beads, candles and cornucopias.

  • Booking not needed
  • Free event (admission applies)

Casting off the winter blues you can immerse yourself in the magic of Christmas with a festive lap of the mansion’s ground floor which you’ll find luxuriously decorated for a Victorian Christmas. The moodier the weather outside, the more the Christmas tree lights sparkle, illuminating the characterful interiors with a warm glow. Highlights include a theatrical staircase hall and, a hidden gem, a Tudor chapel featuring jewel-bright stained-glass windows.

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:

  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 Admissions let us reclaim tax on the whole amount paid - an extra 25 per cent - potentially a very significant boost to our places' funds.
