Christmas Reflections at Nostell

Christmas tree decorated at Nostell

In 2019 we're shining a light on the ornate pier glass that Thomas Chippendale created for one of the finest treasure houses in Yorkshire. As a final Christmas celebration, our staff and volunteers have crafted decorations inspired by the golden swirls and mythical Ho Ho birds of this special mirror.

Discover magical displays and the splendour of a Yorkshire country house Christmas, taking time to reflect on your own festive traditions and family memories.

Fun for all the family
