November 25, 2017 - December 29, 2017 |

Imaginatively decorated for this year’s theme ‘Christmas in Wonderland’, Doddington Hall will be open especially for the festive period. Taking inspiration from Alice in Wonderland, the Hall will be creatively transformed with displays filled with Christmas adventure and wonder.


It’s an opportunity to soak up the festive atmosphere of Christmas in a treasured family home, which has seen a lot of Christmas mornings over its four hundred year plus history. A chance to see what the present day family and staff have created and to think about how Christmas may have looked and felt through the centuries.


For the first time, the Hall will open for two days between Christmas and New Year, Thursday 28 and Friday 29 December, 10am-4pm so visitors can make the most of family time over the festive holidays.


The Hall will be open five days a week between Sat 25 Nov – Fri 22 Dec:-

Wednesday to Friday 2-6pm, Saturday & Sunday 10am-4pm

Plus Thurs 28 & Fri 29 Dec 10am-4pm
