What's happening this Christmas?

Following the impact of the coronavirus crisis, which has affected almost every aspect of our income we are sad to say that unfortunately Saltram will not be running Enchanted Saltram in 2020. Enchanted Saltram has been a great fundraiser for Saltram over the past four years and has meant we have been able to do even more conservation work within the park, garden and house. This is mostly down to our local community who have supported Enchanted Saltram and visited time and time again each year, for this we are very thankful.

Illuminated garden

Bobble hats at the ready, this Christmas the garden will be washed with light as some of its most loved areas are lit up with a rainbow of colours and installations. The illuminations in the garden begin at dusk each evening.

The enchanted house

Some of the rooms within the house have been visited by some of our most loved fairy tales.  Amongst the other spectacular rooms, the grandest at Saltram, the Saloon, will be transformed into a magical fairytale with decadently decorated trees and magical interventions to make the house feel enchanted. The house will be open from 12pm each day.
