Visit the Christmas Mansion

Dating from  the 18th and 19th centuries, the staterooms are home to the interesting collections of art and antiques gathered by different generations of the Egerton family and are the setting for our beautiful Christmas displays. On select days either local musicians will be providing entertainment or a choir will be performing for visitors in the staircase hall. Towards the end of the tour, visitors will be able to watch decoration demonstrations, picking up ideas for garlands and wreaths to try at home, then watch festive baking demonstrations in the kitchens. There is a mincemeat treat to enjoy at the end of your visit!

The house looked amazing and the food was excellent. 2016 review from St. Elizabeth's Scarisbrick
