Christmas at the Castle
The holly jolly holidays are on their merry way, and we're pulling out all the stops to make this year a gigantic success. It's going to be larger than life. Take a peek at what's in store when you visit this Christmastime at the castle.
Christmas at the Castle: 5 - 8 and 12 - 15 December 2019
Make new traditions with your friends and family as we make the festive season the best it can get. See the castle lit up and decorated like never before.
Each chamber of the Great Tower will hold surprises in store as you step through into a series of rooms that bring the night before christmas to life - on EPIC proportions!
See gigantic stockings and massive mince pies in a room prepared for a night of present deliveries down the chimney. Take a rest as you reach the top and relax on giant mattresses while you read a classic Christmas story together.
You'll have to hold onto your jingle bells as you're dazzled by an illuminated finale on the roof of the tower - sure to give you some tinsel tales to tell around the fireplace.
Inside the Parlour browse a selection of unique festive wares at the handful of artisan stalls, perfect for gift giving, as well a whole host of scrumptious seasonal treats to eat including Christmas cake, gingerbread men and the essential mulled wine (certain stallholders only attending Saturday and Sunday).
Admire the atmosphere and smell the aromas of Christmas past.
