Description

This festive season, Castle Ward invites you to step inside and experience the mansion dressed in tableau for an evocative eighteenth-century Christmas.

Enjoy a feast for all the senses as you explore the rooms of the mansion house just as the Georgians did in the dark and cosy winter evenings. The halls are wreathed in colourful historical garlands; the dining table adorned with festive food and rich wines; the air filled with delicious scents of Christmas; and if you listen carefully, you can hear the sounds of celebration from centuries past.

The Christmastide experience finishes in the depths of the mansion house where you will find the preparations for Christmas well under way in the basement.

 

There are a limited number of visitors allowed inside at one time. This is a free-flow experience with an accompanying audio throughout the rooms of the house.

Masks are to be worn within indoor communal spaces. Hand sanitizer will be provided upon entrance into the house and at various points within.

Advance booking is not required.
