Step back in time to a magical Victorian Christmas at Beaulieu from 16 December – 1 January. Join the Montagu family, played by costumed actors, as they prepare for Christmas festivities in Palace House in 1889. See the family and servants rehearse a Christmas Day pantomime, with visitors invited to step on stage.
Then meet Lady Montagu in the library for craft activities to make your own Christmas card or create a sparkling decoration to hang on the tree. Dress up in period-perfect accessories and hats to take your own family portrait photograph through a vintage frame.
Head to the kitchen to talk to Lord Montagu’s cook and her kitchen maid as they prepare for Christmas Day lunch. Then listen to carol singing around the grand piano in the lower drawing room, before enjoying a glass of mulled punch and warming yourself beside the roaring log fire.
See a Christmas tree in every room decked with traditional decorations. Don’t miss the life-sized gingerbread house and marvel at one of the New Forest’s largest outdoor Christmas trees outside the National Motor Museum.
All of the Christmas activities are included in the general admission ticket. Beaulieu is open every day except Christmas Day from 10am-5pm. On the weekends of 9-10 and 16-17 December, Palace House will be open until 6pm. To book tickets online or for more information see www.beaulieu.co.uk or call 01590 612345.
