Christmas at Nunnington Hall

Presents under the Christmas Tree at Nunnington Hall

Come to Nunnington Hall and celebrate Christmas in the 1920s. We have festive activities for all the family to enjoy, from visits to Father Christmas, beautiful decorations throughout the house and delicious homemade food in the tea-room.

Discover the Hall as it would have been when the Fife family celebrated Christmas in the 1920’s. You’ll be welcomed by the Butler with a tot of sherry to enjoy by a roaring fire. Explore the house dressed with evergreens picked from the Garden, and see the Christmas trees as they twinkle with lights and decorations. Hear stories from the Fife family traditions and how they differed to that of the servants Christmas celebrations.
