Christmas in Yorkshire
Celebrate Christmas in Yorkshire this year with festive days out. See decorated houses twinkly with seasonal sparkle and lights, enjoy a winter walk and tuck into festive food and drink.
Christmas is seeing the abbey sparkle. As the afternoon light starts to fade, make your way to the abbey and wander through the ruins aglow.
For Christmas 2023 at Nostell, we invite you to come and experience a magical world of fairy tales and folklore. The rooms in the house will be decorated in a fairy tale theme and the garden trails will take you on a journey of folklore and fairies. Come and find Father Christmas as he relaxes in the house, spreading the Christmas joy throughout December.
Discover the must-sees when visiting Wentworth Castle Gardens and exploring its centuries of history.
Find out what Father Christmas is planning and how you can book to see him this year. Plan your day including where to go for refreshments, a spot of shopping and what else to expect on a winter visit.
Step back in time to 1647 when Christmas celebrations were forbidden to join James Murgatroyd, a former resident of East Riddlesden Hall, as he enjoys secret festivities. Families can come and learn about 17th century traditions with storytelling, festive crafting and even receive a special gift.
The scene is set as the hall's rooms are adorned with sparkling lights and decorations inspired by pantomime favourites such as Peter Pan and Snow White. At weekends, join the elves for children’s crafts and add to the ever-growing paper chain. Tuck into seasonal treats from the café and warm up by the fire pit in the garden.
Discover beautiful and unique decorations, twinkling lights and all the warmth of the festive season at Treasurer’s House in York as we share stories of Frank Green's travels, 13 November - 17 December, Saturday - Wednesday. Head downstairs to the café serving seasonal treats and the shop around the corner to complete your visit.
Take a journey back through time and explore Christmas through the ages, from the indulgent feasting of the Georgians and the arrival of the Christmas tree with the Victorians, to the glitz and glamour of the roaring 1920s. Every Sunday there’ll be a choir singing in the Oak Hall to add to the festive spirit.
