Christmas at Haddon Hall

Christmas Artisan Market


17, 18, 19 Nov*

Haddon Hall is probably the finest example of a fortified medieval manor house in existence and provides a unique view of early English life and history, making it a hugely popular location for film-makers.  We visit the Hall decorated for the festive season, with roaring fires, golden decorations and music filling the air.  Whilst the popular Christmas Artisan Market is running (held in the Hall and Gardener’s Cottage) we will enjoy exploring the Hall at our own pace.  When we visit outside of the Christmas Market days, we will enjoy a guided tour of the Hall.

 

 

Christmas at Kedleston Hall (NT)


2 Dec – 19 Dec*

Take a trip back in time to the 1760s at this spectacular neo-classical mansion framed by historic parkland.  Designed as a show palace and lavish entertaining space to showcase the family’s collection of art, sculpture and furnishings, Kedleston is a stunning example of the work of architect Robert Adam and even more so at Christmas!  Get in the Christmas spirit and see the hall decorated in all its festive finery for a traditional Kedleston Christmas.

 

 

Christmas at Hardwick Hall (NT)

Immerse yourself in Christmas at Hardwick where you can discover traditional songs and carols around the Hall and Gardens.
