Wrap up or Snuggle Up at Oxburgh this October

As the nights draw in and the leaves start to fall leaving a carpet of colour over the ground, we love to wrap up warm and get outdoors or snuggle indoors. Decide what you would like to do this October at Oxburgh Hall.

The House and the Gardens are open daily this October, and there is something to enjoy every day at Oxburgh Hall. We love our outdoors for all that nature has to offer this time of year especially the Autumnal colour and our home grown vegetables from our Kitchen Garden. You can find some of our weird and wonderful Pumpkins on our Halloween Trail during October half term.

Our Copper Beech tree is made for Autumn. Why not relax with a warm cup of hot chocolate on our bench underneath?

Explore the house and you can see how the Victorian family would while away their winters next to the stunning stone fireplace in the library, dressed as if the 6th Baronet had left the room.

The King's Room has been dressed with more stunning hanging tapestries this year. The colours add warmth to the medieval room. No matter the weather you can always dare to climb into the Priest Hole to discover what it was like to be a Catholic priest hunted by your persecutors during the 16th century.

We have some great events on this October too. Come to Apple Day on 8th October and enjoy craft stalls and speak to local experts about the Apple. If you have an Apple tree at home, then why not bring an apple with you and have it identified, or even bring a load of them and get them pressed in our Apple Press and take home your own Apple Juice!

There's plenty of Halloween fun during half term with our Pumpkin Trails around the estate for children to enjoy. And for adults, we will be opening the house at night on 27th and 28th October for our very special Oxburgh by Candlelight event in conjunction with Museums at Night week. See Oxburgh in a different light and tour the house with one of our expert room guides. Discover the Victorian All Hallows Eve traditions and what these meant in a Catholic household. See our What's On page for further details.
