Enjoy Champagne and Canapés throughout this festive evening as you tour the decorated Castle State Rooms, climb the Oak Staircase, explore the Bedrooms and discover our Egyptian Exhibition in the cellars.  We will have a variety of Canapés to suit all tastes, including Vegetarian options served throughout the evening (please note; we are unable to accommodate additional dietary requests for this event).


Our Christmas traditions owe so much to the Victorian era; from the decorations, carols and Father Christmas to the cards we send and presents we give to family and friends. The Earl and Countess of Carnarvon are delighted to welcome you to Highclere or “Downton Abbey” as you may well call it, to enjoy the spirit of Christmas.


Join us on a winters’ evening, seeing the floodlit Castle as you enter the park, making your way past the trees lighting the drive, before escaping the cold weather as you are welcomed into the Saloon with the log fires burning. A Christmas garland winds its way down the bannisters of the Oak Staircase and of course we will have our grand decorated tree taking pride of place. It really is a beautiful setting for a magical evening.


At the end of the evening there will be carol singers on the Oak Staircase to sing with us around the Christmas tree as we gather festive spirit and mark the beginning of the Christmas. There will even be a chance to shop in our gift shop as you stock up for last minute Christmas presents!

Your tickets includes a signed copy of  Lady Carnarvon's ‘Christmas at Highclere’ book, please collect this from the Gift Shop during your visit.
