Christmas at Tredegar House

Get into the Christmas spirit as we dress the house in traditional, Victorian decorations and let Scrooge loose for an 'A Christmas Carol' themed celebration.

Join us on the weekends leading up to Christmas as we fill the house with music, merriment and festive feeling for a traditional Christmas experience.

Gather the family and spend time together...  

Make a Christmas wish and hang it on our wish tree, sing along with choirs, play Christmas parlour games, make a pomander, stir the Christmas pudding, create Christmas crafts, follow trails and meet Dickensian characters...by the end we're sure you'll feel right at home and fully festive.

'A Christmas Carol' 

Scrooge is on the rampage and it's up to us to cheer him up! Follow the story of 'A Christmas Carol' through the formal gardens and into the mansion where Scrooge is counting his coins by candlelight... and he's in a terrible mood. 

Meet the ghosts of Christmas past, present and yet to come as they try their hardest to teach him the true meaning of Christmas. Make Jacob Marley's chains and see if you can melt Scrooge's heart with a Christmas card or two... 

Can we turn bad old Mr. Scrooge good in time for Christmas day? We think we need your help... 

Follow the story of 'A Christmas Carol' through the gardens... get ready to meet the real deal inside the mansion!

Visit Father Christmas

We've had a letter from Lapland to confirm it... Father Christmas will be visiting us over the Christmas weekends. He'll have a gift for all the (good!) children and we know he's going to be so pleased to see you. 

He's a popular man so we'll give you a timed ticket for entry when you visit our welcome team at reception. There's no need to pre-book and it costs £2.50 per Father Christmas visit + normal admission.

Christmas craft stalls

Racking your brain to think up that perfect gift for your special someone? Never fear, pop along to our Christmas craft stalls and we're sure you'll find something wonderful. 

Local craftspeople will be selling their handmade, artisnal products in our Christmassy courtyard. Grab a mince pie and meet the small collection of sellers - we reckon it's the best way to break free of the high street this festive season.
