Wallington this Christmas

This Christmas promises to be truly special as you take in the House and grounds at this wonderful time of year. Discover the 50 Christmas trees marking our 50th Anniversary and enjoy the house beautifully decorated for the season. Soak up the festive atmosphere as you enjoy music in the Central Hall, the smells of baking from the Aga in the kitchen and hear stories with Mrs Christmas. Meet Father Christmas in his cosy grotto and receive a special gift. Get the kids outdoors and burning off their excess energy by joining the 1-mile Jingle Bell Jog and when little legs need a break from all the excitement stop for a festive treat in the café and tick off the Christmas shopping with a trip to the festive shop.
