Christmas at Ightham Mote

Christmas at Ightham Mote gets off to a grand start with a festive opening weekend on 1 and 2 December. There will be the annual Christmas mini-market, where a range of local producers will be selling their wares and the man in a red coat is rumoured to be making a visit. Craft activities and festive music will keep everyone entertained throughout the day. For the perfect traditional experience the ground floor of the house will be unveiled in all its Christmas glory and will be open throughout December. You’ll also have the chance to see more of the servant’s areas as the scullery, kitchen and dining hall open for the first time. A series of workshops from tree decorating to cake decorating take place throughout November, ensuring you are prepped and ready for the big day. Wrap up a visit with a warm drink in the Mote café and catch some carol singing to really get in the festive spirit.

Price: Normal admission applies. Workshops priced separately
