Event Details

Forde Abbey’s White Christmas

7th – 21st December

Open everyday except Mondays and Tuesdays, 3.30pm – 8pm.

Christmas at Forde Abbey is a magical time of year, and this December we’ll be inviting you to share in the joy and wonder of the season with an enchanting trail around the gardens.

After dark, and for the very first time, we’ll be lighting the long borders, illuminating the champion trees and casting a magical shine over the house – Forde Abbey as you’ve never seen it before.

Inside the house, the Great Hall and chapel, as well as the private family dining room and drawing room will be decorated for the festivities and Father Christmas will be taking a break from present-wrapping duties and popping in on Saturday 16th and Sunday 17th December. No doubt he’ll have a few stories to share with younger visitors and might also have a very special present for them if they’ve been good.

Warm your hands on a mug of mulled wine in the tearooms and enjoy mince pies and a selection of homemade treats on the menu.
