Christmas at Tredegar House

Festive garden at Tredegar House

Get into the Christmas spirit as we dress the gardens in traditional decorations for a truly festive experience.

We all have our favourite ways to ring in the festive cheer of the holidays. This year things have been a little different, but we are still celebrating Christmas traditions - those from  days gone by and those we still follow today.

The Christmas Experience

This year we have decorated throughout the gardens, which are full of festive cheer. From Saturday 5th December, the mansion house will be closed in line with Welsh Government legislation. The garden, parkland, and cafe are open to Wales residents and to groups of four or less (excluding children below 11) unless they are from the same household.

Unfortunately, due to the ongoing Coronavirus situation we are not able to offer our Father Christmas experience, or some other elements including Scrooge, craft activities, singalongs and school visits.

On Saturday 12th December Cotyledon Markets will be joining us for their craft and food market. Tickets are not required to attend the market.
