Victorian Christmas

Guided tours of the Castle are taken by one of our wonderful guides dressed in costume and in character as a Housekeeper, Butler, Governess or Footman. Each tell their preparations for Christmas Eve as they would have been in 1849.

You can also enjoy a festive treat in Walkers House Tea Room. There is seating in both Walkers House Tea Room and our overflow heated Marquee, reservations are not required. A full menu will be displayed here shortly.
