Celebrate the magic of Christmas at Holkham from the end of November in 2022 with a Candlelight Tour of the Hall and Christmas Fair. See each stateroom beautifully adorned with sweet-scented pine trees, greenery, sparkling decorations, and twinkling lights. Each room will have its own theme and your guide will tell you all about the inspiration behind each magical setting.
Make your visit extra special with a Champagne, Candlelight, and Creators of Christmas tour – your unique chance to meet the faces behind Christmas at Holkham. How about extending the Christmas magic by joining us in the beautiful Chapel in Holkham Hall between Christmas and New Year for a Candlelight Experience with ‘Nativity’: a moving-image artwork by Martha Fiennes.
Have they been naughty or nice? Treat the children to our sell-out event, An Audience with Father Christmas, where they will meet our singing band of Ukulele Elves before sitting down for stories and surprises with Father and Mother Christmas.
Holkham Hall opens its doors to a variety of spectacular seasonal celebrations. Visitors will leave the coldness of winter at the door as they enter the magic that is Christmas at Holkham. From November to December, the privately owned 25,000 acre estate will be hosting an array of festive events against the sumptuous backdrop of the historical state rooms, beautifully adorned with decorations which can be admired by twinkling candlelight, as well as offering indulgent locally-sourced treats and gifts for all the family, making it the perfect setting for a festive winter getaway.
There is also the annual Holkham Festive Food Fair. The fair showcases the best of local and regional food and drink, and a live cookery theatre will feature demonstrations from renowned local chefs. The Holkham Christmas Food fair also features numerous stalls with great gift ideas from local producers.
In 2021 Chanel 4 took a magical look at how the team at Holkham Hall prepare for Christmas 2021, from sweet-scented pine trees, sparkling decorations and twinkling lights to a stunning candlelight experience. You can see the Channel 4 programme here Christmas at Holkham 23 December 2021
