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

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, dancing and games, soak up the atmosphere as the Gibbs family and their servants prepare for the festivities.

Festive storytelling

For our Christmas TYNTEtots sessions, with storytelling and games for under fives and their families, we'll be exploring Beatrix Potter's classic story of 'The Tailor of Gloucester'.

You can create your very own tree decoration, test your tailoring skills and play some festive games. It's a great way for your tots to experience the festive season in a traditional Victorian setting.

Evening opening at Tyntesfield

We're just finalising the details for our evening opening. If you check back here at the end of October, we should have the rest of the information ready for you.
