Christmas in Cambridgeshire

Our places in Cambridgeshire are ready to share their festive traditions with you. Father Christmas, carols, houses decorated for the season, crafts and seasonal treats; there's plenty of things to do. Plus every time you visit you're helping us to look after these special places. So why not make us part of your Christmas?

Christmas at Wimpole 

Celebrate Christmas at Wimpole with a Georgian twist this year. There will be seasonal music, singing, food, decorations, walks and craft activities. Step inside to see several of the showrooms, bedecked with Christmas decorations, then head below stairs, which are more humbly decorated.

Christmas is coming...
1960's Christmas at Anglesey Abbey

Twelve trees of Anglesey Abbey 

Explore the extraordinary story of Anglesey Abbey and Lord Fairhaven’s passion for collecting, through a trail of twelve trees. Each tree is uniquely decorated to share a different aspect of Anglesey Abbey’s story. Help us create our final tree in the garden using decorations you can make from natural materials in the Domestic Wing.
