Free late night opening 30 November. House opens weekends in December (closed 23 & 24 December), when normal admission applies
Christmas inspired by the Georgian history of Quebec House starts with a special, free late-night opening on 30 November, 4pm to 7pm. Take in lights, greenery and a Georgian feast, as well as carol singing from the children of Churchill School, Westerham. Warm up after with a hot chocolate in the Coach House.
On weekends in December, the doors to the childhood home of General James Wolfe, victor of the Battle of Quebec (1759), will be thrown open to reveal greenery around every banister and mantlepiece using natural foliage. Roaring fires, a sumptuous Georgian feast, a Quebec gingerbread house and shadow puppets in the schoolroom, all add to the authentic and cosy atmosphere.
In the kitchen, try a delicious bakes, prepared from the cookbook of Wolfe’s mother, Henrietta.
