We will have decked the halls and lit the hundreds of candles in readiness for you to celebrate Christmas with us and tour the hall by candlelight. This is a truly magical opportunity to relish the magnificent state rooms adorned with opulent Christmas decorations and beautiful flickering candlelight. Lady Leicester, together with Christmas-connoisseur Catherine Zoll, spend the entire year designing the sets and themes for your enjoyment. Collaborating with renowned makers and artists including Claire Owen, Emma Thorburn, Alice King, FX-Live and Natalie Boon, you will be wowed by everything from frozen and jungle scenes to lavish jewelled decadence and a surprising canine masterpiece. In addition, we will be celebrating an alternative Christmas in the Old Kitchen with a handmade festive scene.

Our knowledgeable room stewards will take you on your tour, and share how the installations and unique decorations were created and divulge the inspiration behind each room setting.

We also invite you to enjoy a glass of Prosecco and mince pie in the Courtyard Café before your tour. Our Gift Shop will be open for special decorations and those perfect presents for your loved ones. Please check Courtyard Café and Gift Shop opening times here.
