Special Christmas Eve

Just a little reminder. The Christmas House opens its wee door for the last time this coming Christmas Eve weekend, so if you were planning a visit, now is the last chance for 2018. We are open this Saturday and Sunday, no booking required. And we also have a special Christmas Eve opening, where you can soak up the magical atmosphere accompanied with a tipple of Tudor spiced wine. Bookings are required for this day – so if you’re planning on making your Christmas Eve that extra bit special, we recommend you contact us to secure your ticket. Read more...

All is for sale. Step inside and the alchemy continues with room after room brimming with the beautiful and the practical, creating an imaginarium of wondrous gift ideas.  Read more...
