A Chippendale Christmas

The Top Hall at Nostell decorated for Christmas

This year Nostell's Christmas festivities have a Chippendale theme, as a celebration of the 300th anniversary of the baptism of the 'Shakespeare of furniture'. Look out for chair decorations and marbled paper garlands amongst the traditional decorations.

Follow the trail

This year our outdoor team have taken inspiration from 'the Shakespeare of furniture' and created our very own chair trail. See if you can locate all the chairs and don't forget to share your pictures of the best sitting poses on them with us on Facebook and Twitter @NostellNT.

Explore the gardens on any day, 10am - 4pm.

Family holiday fun


Got some excited little elves in your house? There's plenty to do at Nostell to make those magical memories. Download the geocaching app and go on a digitial treasure hunt, or pick up and orienteering map from the Stables reception.

Visiting over the Christmas week? Pick up a winter wildlife trail to explore the gardens, try out those new bikes and scooters on the parkland paths and have a go at den building in Joiner's Wood. Remember we're open every day except Christmas day!
