Shugborough will be adorned with festive displays to add some sparkle to your visit this season.

125 Treasures

Inspired by our inclusion in 125 Treasures of the National Trust, this winter we are celebrating with '125 Treasures of Shugborough'. 

The list of 125 treasures has been chosen by staff and volunteers who work here, with space for you to add your own. From monuments to mirrors, scones to sheep, the list is the definitive 'must see' at Shugborough.

Be warned though, to tick everything off this list you will have to be a dedicated visitor! Some items can only be seen at certain times of the year or with a little help from someone from the Shugborough team.

You can download the full list here.

Christmas displays

Throughout the season you can discover and learn about a variety of special objects, people and places. During December a selection of items on the list will be highlighted through magnificent displays inside and out.

Shugborough has a reputation for its creative Christmas displays, so expect some surprises and loads of opportunities to capture that ultimate Christmas photo.

Our shops and cafés will be open as usual, offering festive treats and gifts that will make your day really sparkle.
