From Saturday 2 December to Sunday 31 December, see over-the-top Christmas trees, festive fireplaces and beautiful lights transform the 13th century castle into a magical experience.
Taking inspiration from the treasures that lie within, each State Room will transport you to a different part of the world or period. Venetian, Chinese, Elizabethan - there's something special to discover in every corner of the castle this Christmas.
To ensure everyone can enjoy all this wonderful season has to offer, the castle will be open until the later time of 7pm between 14 and 23 December. During these dates, enjoy a lighting display which illuminates the grand walls of the 13th century castle and capture that perfect picture as you enter the courtyard.
The castle decorations will still be on display on 24 December but will close at the usual time of 4pm.
This special site is closed on Christmas Day and Boxing Day, so the decorated castle will be open post-Christmas from 27 - 31 December.
