Christmas combines with medieval merriment at Red House this winter. Wassail like William Morris and the Pre-Raphaelites in the orchard before stepping inside the bedecked building. Then settle down to hear from Father Christmas dressed in his traditional green garb.
The Rainham Village Fayre is a local celebration heralding the start of the festive season. Rainham Hall has been situated proudly in the heart of the village since 1729, and we'll be hosting crafting activities on the day to help families get into the Christmas spirit.
From merry meanders through Morden Hall Park to rambles by the river at Ham House and Garden, all our winter walks in London are bursting with festive charm. So muster up your family and friends, grab a hat and scarf and head off to embrace the outdoors.
