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.

Tinsel and Tweed at Anglesey Abbey 

Take a step back in time to the 1960s at Anglesey Abbey. Revel in festive smells and glitzy vintage decorations throughout the Domestic Wing. In contrast to celebrations ‘below stairs’, the rest of the house will be dressed-to-impress for his Lordship’s Christmas celebrations.
