Father Christmas at Preston Manor

Father Christmas at Preston ManorExperience the magic of Christmas as Lady Ellen’s sumptuous Drawing Room is transformed by the presence of Father Christmas. Come and see the work of his helpful Elf who has been busy decorating the Christmas Tree and the room with garlands and Victorian-style decorations and finally wrapping the gifts for all the children who come to visit.

As you wait to meet Father Christmas enjoy dressing up, listen to stories or read a Christmas book.

After you’ve met the man himself you can take an escorted tour with a costumed guide, have fun with an eye-spy trail or try dressing as a Victorian in a real Victorian kitchen.

There is plenty to see in the house. The Dining Room table is set as if a grand family of the period are about to take tea and Lady Ellen’s little Morning Room is covered in Victorian and Edwardian Christmas cards, holly and ivy and traditional decorations.

Don’t forget to bring your camera!

The gift shop will be open for last minute stocking fillers, cards and other vintage gifts.
