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 23 November 2019 - Sunday 5 January 2020

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.

New for 2019: We'll be open later Wednesday to Sunday evenings during December, to give you even more time to enjoy the festive magic. Please check the opening times for more detail.

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 this year 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?
