'Christmas in colours' at Avebury

Traditions are what make Christmas; whether it’s a seasonal recipe that gets made every year, a favourite National Trust property to be inspired by Christmas decorations or a winter walk you do with loved ones. This year our theme is 'Christmas in colours' and you'll find Avebury Manor decorated with the crystal whites of frosty winter to the warm tones of the fireside.
