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, with mulled wine and Christmas food to enjoy in the cafe. There are outdoor trails at Hatchlands Park and Claremont Landscape Garden. Plus book now for Father Christmas in his vintage grotto, for a really family friendly Christmas at Hatchlands Park.
