Great Hall Christmas opening: daily Sat 27 Nov-Fri 24 Dec
Visit the Great Hall for some Christmas inspiration - there'll be festive trees, natural decorations and a display of historic toys.
- Booking not needed
- Free event (admission applies)
See the Great Hall dressed for a family Christmas. This was where the Fox Talbot family would come together, to gather around the fire, sing carols and exchange presents. We'll be decorating the Hall with traditional greenery and twinkling lights to bring a taste of Christmas past to our Christmas present.
The Great Hall will be open every day from Saturday 27 November to Friday 24 December, 11.30am to 3.30pm. Closed Christmas Day, Boxing Day and New Year's Day.

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|
