A twilight Christmas

Come along as dusk starts to fall and join in with the magical Christmas celebrations.

  • Booking essential

Festooned with fairy lights, the Airedale Barn is the perfect place for a Christmas market. There'll be a great choice of gifts to buy, food and drink to enjoy and lots of festive cheer.

You can also follow the family trail through the gardens, see a real-life nativity scene and meet Dominic the donkey.

The Great Barn will be dressed with greenery and filled with seasonal music. Find a straw bale, pick up a blanket, a warming drink and sit back to enjoy the atmosphere.
