Christmas in Surrey

All across Surrey we are bringing festive traditions to life at our country houses, atmospheric gardens and wintery countryside. Come on our new Christmas trails and share in the festive spirit as we bring in boughs of winter greenery and make handmade decorations.

Polesden Lacey is dressed for a glittering 1930s Christmas party and there are new outdoor trails for families at Hatchlands Park, Claremont Landscape Garden and Winkworth Arboretum. Book now for Father Christmas in his vintage grotto at Hatchlands Park. Or harvest your own Christmas tree and try wreath making in the Surrey Hills.
