Christmas at The Vyne 

The curtain rises on The Nutcracker as you explore the gardens and luxuriously decorated ground floor of the house. Families can follow heroes Clara and the Nutcracker as they defeat the villainous Mouse King on indoor and outdoor trails. Look out for plucky gingerbread men, pirouetting snowflakes and savour the sight of a sumptuous banquet in the ‘Land of Sweets’. Runs 25 November 2023 to 1 January 2024. House open 11am-3pm and gardens open 10am-4pm. Closed 24 and 25 December.
