A festive house

From 4 December until 6 January, the ground floor of the house will be open and the library will be full of festive spirit dressed for a New England Christmas which would have been enjoyed by Mr Robinson. Journey back in time for a Victorian Christmas in the Great Hall too, well worth a visit to get you into the festive spirit.
