Christmas at Scotney Castle 2018

This Christmas there is something for everyone at Scotney Castle. Join us for storytelling with Father Christmas & Mrs Claus, family festive trails, Victorian Christmas in the mansion house, crowd free Christmas shopping and delicious Christmas lunches.

This Christmas celebrate the Victorian Christmas that the Hussey Family would have enjoyed, with traditional decorations and toys to enjoy within the house. Why not join us for a delicious two or three course festive menu in our tea-room, or enjoy a hot chocolate and mince pie after a stroll in the garden.

If you are visiting with the kids then they can complete our festive family Noah's ark trail in the garden,  visit Father Christmas and Mrs Claus for storytelling in the old castle, and wrap up warm for a visit to our childrens play area which will be open all winter.
