National Trust festive favourites revealed

Christmas is a time for traditions, from those passed down through families to new discoveries with friends that become part of your festive celebrations. Sending cards, decorating trees, carol singing, advent calendars, mince pies and mistletoe…there are some festive traditions without which Christmas just wouldn’t be Christmas.

For many, a day out to a National Trust house and garden is already a Christmas must do. Over the festive season, National Trust places will be decked out with Christmas sparkle, Father Christmas will visit special grottos, there’ll be wreath making and Christmas crafts, and atmospheric estates will be packed full of festive traditions to bring Christmas to life through the ages.

There are plenty of activities on offer to help make your Christmas that extra bit special in these winter wonderland locations.

Every single visit this Christmas will support the National Trust’s work as a charity looking after special places for future generations to enjoy.
