Discover your new Christmas tradition

Family visitors at Christmas in a National Trust property

Magical Christmas' at Wightwick have a long tradition, and for many of our visitors it is a regular part of their festive holiday.

Deck the halls (and the Great Parlour)

The highlight of Wightwick's Christmas are the house decorations. Once again our volunteer decorating elves have worked their magic and the house looks amazing.  You can view the decorations until the 28th of December.

Our volunteers use traditional techniques to turn foliage from the garden into an amazing array of arrangements that evoke memories of that traditional Christmas we all wish we'd had. This year we've added some new themes, see the Edwardian inspired Morning Room, the contemporary Drawing Room and the Dining Room commemorating when the house was requisitioned during the war.

Remember the house is open every day except Tuesdays and the whole site is closed Christmas Day. From Boxing Day only the ground floor is open, which includes the main decorated rooms. The winter wet weather means our overflow carpark is not very safe so we encourage visitors to car share with friends and family as much as possible.

Christmas presents with a twist

Our range of William Morris inspired products are great gifts. From a Rossetti notebook stocking filler to a Strawberry Thief handbag we have something for every Arts & Crafts fan, so visit our Old Manor shop, open right up until 4pm on Christmas Eve.
