Christmas in Buckinghamshire

This year in Buckinghamshire you can stock up on gifts at our Christmas markets and shops, follow Stowe's landscape advent calendar trail, discover an Adventure in Wonderland at Hughenden or enjoy Waddesdon's light spectacle.

We have all the traditions of carols, decorated houses and seasonal treats to enjoy and every time you visit you're helping to look after these special places.

Christmas at Ashridge is inspired by Mouse and his friends who live in the woodland. Follow the trail and pick up materials for a Christmas garland or get stuck in to some Christmas crafts. The jingle ponies are back this year on 17 Dec.
