We are delighted to announce the return of our annual Christmas Experience. Come and visit Santa and Mrs. Claus in the wonderful setting of Mount Stewart House.

A warm welcome awaits you at Mount Stewart this festive season.  Our elves are excited to greet you and ensure you are toasty warm before you venture into the Big House. After some refreshments and a spot of biscuit decorating in the kitchens, you will follow the Bauble Trail up to the Nursery to write your letter to Santa.  Then, if you have been very good, you will be able to deliver your letter in person as you visit Mr and Mrs Claus in their cosy sitting room.  There might even be a present for you under their tree!  There is also the opportunity to follow the Christmas trail around the lake.
