Family festive fun at Hinton Ampner

Christmas decorations at Hinton Ampner Hampshire

This Christmas we're re-telling the classic tales from Aesop’s Fables.

Hinton’s Christmas Fables trail

Sunday 1 - Tueday 31 December, 10am - 3.30pm. £2 per trail plus normal admissions to the property. 

The animals of Aesop’s fables are facing a dilemma and need help from little ones to solve it before Christmas arrives.

The trail takes place outside, so do dress for the weather.  

Pop-up vintage sweet shop

Hinton’s pop-up vintage sweet shop makes a welcome return to the courtyard. Its shelves are laden with traditional old-fashioned sweets which make the perfect stocking-filler present for all ages.
