|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every day that begins at 10:00am, repeating until 23rd December 2017

Each of the medieval rooms in the Palace will be decorated with a different theme, exploring styles through the ages and bringing the outside in, with seasonal foliage and greenery from the Palace Gardens. Visitors will be greeted by roaring fires, a multitude of twinkling trees and a range of family friendly activities celebrating all the fun of the festive season.
