Explore the Hall after hours on our exclusive Twilight Tours

Enjoy a welcome drink and festive treat before beginning your tour of our magical decorations with a dedicated Tour Guide.

The Elizabethan Hall will once again be transformed for the festive period and decorated throughout for the theme ‘Christmas on the Riverbank’. We’ll be bringing the outdoors in to create spectacular scenes for a magical family day out.

It’s an opportunity to soak up the seasonal 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.

Decorations throughout the Hall are largely handmade using material that’s grown or produced on the Doddington Estate.
