Christmas at Uppark

This article was about our Christmas activities at Uppark in 2017. We’ll be updating this with 2018 event information later on in the year. Please go to our main Uppark homepage to find out what we're doing this year.

You’ll be spoiled for choice, with the house decorated for a Victorian country house party, an interactive family trail, and other activities. There’s Christmas meals, festive shopping, and plenty of opportunities to escape the twenty-first century world.

Throughout the season soak up the atmosphere and spend time with family and friends. Take a look below at what's on.
Open daily throughout the  2017 festive season, including Boxing Day and New Year's Day 10am to 4pm (closed 24 and 25 December).
