Victorian Christmas

Step back in time to meet a range of Victorian characters, including Cooks in the Great Kitchen, Bakers and Villagers at the Moat House.  Meet Mr Charles Darwin himself and the Victorian Ladies in the Parlour.  The Great Hall will be decorated in sumptuous style, with a massive Christmas tree and the decorated Dining Room will be set for Christmas Dinner.

Christmas Trail

Follow the Days of Christmas Trail through the Gardens and find the animals and garden crafts at the stables. 

Festive, Family Fun

Mother Christmas will welcome you to Father Christmas's Cottage, and help you write and post your Christmas letter.  We have a giant sleigh for you to sit in, and, of course, a family visit to Father Christmas for families with children under 11 years of age.


To Book

Please book your day and your entry time band. You are welcome to arrive at any time from the start of your session, you don't need to be here exactly at the start time!  However, our last entry is at 1.30pm; if you arrive later than that, you may not have the time to see everything, and we have so much for you all  to enjoy!   Please arrive in good time to get the most out of your visit.  

Please note that advance booking is essential for this event as we will be limiting numbers on site.  If we have sold out of tickets for any particular day on-line, we regret we will not be able to offer tickets to buy at the gate, as we cannot go above our maximum safe numbers.  If you are Season Ticket holders please also book your tickets on-line.


Practical Advice for your Visit

Dress Warmly! The activities will be indoors and outdoors and beneath open-sided but roofed areas, so make sure you are wrapped up warmly!  Feel free to wear your favourite Christmas hat, and don't forget your festive wellies - the festive season can be muddy if we have had rain.

Access: Some areas may be challenging in wet conditions.  Disabled Visitor Discount: for registered disabled visitors and their carers: please purchase tickets at the next price rate down.  If you are adults or older children, please purchase a younger child ticket, and so on.

"How long will our visit take?" Please allow at least two hours for your visit - more if you plan to have refreshments.  The event closes at 4pm.

"What if it rains or snows?" We will go ahead whatever the weather - please ensure all members of your party are suitably dressed and shod for the forecast weather conditions.  Kentwell Hall has its own Met Office weather report - please click here to view it.

Food and Drink A range of delicious food and snacks will be available from our Take-Out Tearoom.

"Will the house and gardens be open?" The House and Kentwell's 30 acres of Gardens will be open.  

"Are there any extra costs?" The ticket price includes entry to the event, the activities and parking.  The only extra costs which may be incurred would be for refreshments and souvenir purchases.

Virus Precautions:  Visitors must use the map provided and observe current social distancing guidelines.  

Facilities: the loos near the Tea Garden area will be available for use.


Cancellations and refunds: Should Government action at any time cause us to close, we will, of course, refund any tickets purchased for any affected days.  Otherwise, we operate a no-refunds policy.  Tickets are not transferrable to other days, or to other events.  Please always check our website before travelling, in case circumstances or Government Advice has changed.


Covid Precautions: we ask that everyone brings lower face coverings to wear in indoor areas such as our loos.  Please bring your own hand sanitiser.  Please do not attend if you are suffering from, or displaying any symptoms of, Coronavirus, or if you have recently been in contact with someone who has had symptoms or tested positive for Coronavirus.
