Christmas at Erddig

It is 50 years since the National Trust took ownership of Erddig and this year our Christmas theme is inspired by ‘the gift of giving’ to mark this historic moment.

The house and yards will be beautifully decorated, there will be Christmas-inspired craft activities, a reverse grotto, live music on selected dates and a selection of festive food and drink to enjoy after a stroll through the garden. You can also enjoy breakfast or supper with Father Christmas.

Go wild in Wolf’s Den

Visit our natural play area.

It’s time to hop, skip and jump around. Balance on beams, build dens and climb in our natural playground nestled in Big Wood. Whatever the weather, Wolf’s Den is a great space to let off steam.

Please note Wolf's Den will be closed from November 6, 2023, until February 9, 2024, for maintenance and conservation purposes to allow the precious tree roots to rest.
