Christmas for families at Polesden Lacey

A brother and sister enjoying Christmas outdoors

This Christmas, Polesden Lacey has been transformed with festive sparkle which spills out into the grounds. 15 November 2019 - 6 January 2020.

We've got all the ingredients for a festive family day to remember. 

We've transformed the house with sparkle, inspired by the diamonds, pearls and rubies that the last owner of Polesden Lacey, Mrs Greville, loved.  

Enjoy crisp winter days outside with our festive trail and find out what glitters in nature. Father Christmas has even come to visit - you can meet him in his bejewelled grotto.

Why not begin planning your family day at Polesden Lacey this Christmas.
