Things to do with the kids this Christmas at Uppark

Nothing says Christmas like festive food and our family trail and Uppark is the perfect way to get ready for all the treats you'll be enjoying on the big day with our festive food family trail.

Saturday 2 December - Sunday 31 December 10am -3pm

Explore the bustling servants quarters as they clear up  after a busy Victorian Christmas party. See if you can find the scullery maid washing dishes and then have a go at stirring the Christmas pudding. Don't forget to make a wish while you're there.

Help the butler and housekeeper by folding napkins and practicing laying out the table. before trying your hand at dancing in the Lower Servants' Hall.
