This year Father Christmas’ nine trusty reindeer are going on a global adventure. Each is getting dressed and ready for their travels, and their outfits hint at their intended destination. Will Vixen venture to Venezuela or will Dancer be dashing to Denmark?

The ground floor of the house will be feeling festive, with a beautiful 15-foot Christmas tree decorating the Great Hall. Nine mini reindeer will be hiding for everyone to spot.

The Reindeer World tour is on daily from 23 November 2024 to 2 January 2025, from 10am to 4pm. The ground floor of the house is open from 11am to 3pm. Normal admission applies. Montacute House is closed on 24 and 25 December.
