Experience the holiday spirit at Chawton House with its exciting Christmas program. Whether one is an artist, a bookworm, a foodie, or a family seeking festive fun, there is something for everyone across the parkland, gardens, house, and library.
Starting December 8, the house will be adorned for Christmas with hand-crafted decorations, featuring a charming Teddy Bear’s Picnic and a new trail for the little ones. From December 18, the gardens will be illuminated and open to explorers from 3pm to 6.30pm each evening for the Glimmering Gardens display.
The Old Kitchen Tearoom will be serving delicious winter treats, from Christmas cream teas to gingerbread lattes. Additionally, the packed events program invites individuals to get creative at the Christmas wreath-making workshop or enjoy a classical concert featuring music from Jane Austen’s own collection, in celebration of the author’s birthday.
Visitors can explore the Treasures of Chawton House on a guided tour or enjoy a screening of a classic Christmas film. They can warm up with mince pies and mulled wine by the roaring fire or take the kids to brunch with Father Christmas.
