Treasurer’s House “Edwardian Christmas”


Christmas at Treasurer’s House is a magical thing; see the house in all its glory as Christmas trees, wreaths and garlands fill every room with tumbling lights, glittering decorations and festive cheer. This is the perfect place to escape the bustle of the high street and soak up the atmosphere and wonder of an Edwardian Christmas.

Open Thursday to Sunday 11am to 4.30pm until 16th December.



Goddards is opening its doors for a nostalgic run up to Christmas with stories of festive fun from when the Terry children were little to poignant and reflective times during the war. Decorated and ready for Christmas, make

yourselves at home in the family rooms and try your hand at traditional games and card making. Christmas lunches can be booked ahead of your visit.

Goddards is open Friday to Sunday until 16th December.



Beningbrough is open on winter weekends for bracing walks and refreshments with plenty to see and do including

“Sounds of Winter: Whispering Spaces”.

This takes place in lesser-known parts of the garden and in outdoor buildings. As you wander, take in a series of brand new installations, poetry and verse. Listen out for the rustle of crisp leaves, crunching frost underneath and rain drops on glass rooftops – no two days will have the same sounds.
