Christmas at Killerton 2021

We have lots of fun for everyone at Killerton this Christmas. Visit by day to see the traditionally decorated festive house, whilst little ones can get into the festive spirit with Percy The Park Keeper and his animal friends on a winter wander trail.

Visit after hours for a brand new, after-dark illuminated trail through festive gardens at Killerton. We’ll add a dash of sparkle and a sprinkle of seasonal cheer to over a million lights, larger-than-life illuminations and a warm, welcoming atmosphere.

Christmas by day...

Festive spirit will fill the house with traditionally decorated rooms and sumptuous garlands - just as the Acland family may have done when it was a family home. Enjoy a stroll around the winter garden and moment of peace in the chapel with its decorated Christmas trees. The house will be open daily 26 November- 2 January (Closed Christmas Day and Boxing Day).
