A very Victorian Christmas

We're turning the clock back over a hundred years for a very Victorian Christmas at Tyntesfield...

A very Victorian Christmas

Saturday 28 November 2020 - Sunday 3 January 2021

This special time of year gets off to a magical start as we step back into a Christmas past. Join us as we take the season's best loved traditions and bring them to life with our immersive Victorian experience.

With stockings full of festive family fun, traditional decorations, storytelling and games, soak up the atmosphere as the Gibbs family and their servants prepare for the festivities.


Tickets for Tyntesfield's festive events, including wreath making, meet Father Christmas, concerts and horse and carriage rides and carol concerts will go on sale later in the year. 

Christmas gifts

The Tyntesfield shop will be stocked with local artisan products, stocking fillers and seasonal National Trust lines to get everything checked off your list. 

The Somerset Bodgers are based at Tyntesfield and run courses throughout the year. A woodworking course makes an unusual and interesting gift. You can book on behalf of someone else by following the links in the what's on feed below. 

Christmas Trees 

We're delighted to announce that once again we'll be selling Christmas trees at the Home Farm visitor centre. Why not make an evening of collecting your tree, with dinner in the Cow Barn and a chance to enjoy the festive decor in the house?
