It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas at Gunby

Christmas decorations in the Gunby dining room

Join us from 24 November to 9 December for Gunby's annual Christmas openings. This year's theme is 'A Musical Christmas', so you're in for a festive treat for your eyes as well as your ears.

Bring your friends and family to get into the Christmas spirit as Gunby celebrates 'A Musical Christmas'.

Enjoy seeing the house sparkle with decorations, sing along to the festive music and tuck into a lovely mince pie in the tea-room.

The house will be open from 1pm to 5.30pm during our Christmas openings. Normal admission charges apply, free for National Trust members and under 5s.

Children's Trail

Mildred Mousingberd is visiting Gunby for Christmas. She's organising a big party in the dining room for her family and friends who are all hiding in the house. Mildred would love your help to find all the other mice so they can join the party. Pick up a trail sheet from the side door (£1 per sheet) and start your search. Why not buy your own Mousingberd Mouse as a souvenir from the craft stall in the basement?
