Christmas is coming

November 25 – December 10 (Wed – Sun)
December 11 – 24 (Daily)

The decorations are in the shops, the first draft of the Christmas lists have been written and we’re all wondering how much food we need to get through to fit the turkey in the freezer – like it or not, Christmas is coming!  

This year our Christmas is all about the traditional Christmas carol. You’ve sung them in church, at school, or with friends and family and you know all of their words by heart, but do you know the stories behind some of the best-known Christmas carols? Walk through the rooms of the Castle adorned with beautiful decorations and learn about the history of these seasonal songs. Follow the Christmas trail and discover the Twelve Days of Christmas as you wander through the illuminated gardens as dusk falls.

Christmas Joiner Parties

Candlelight, twinkling Christmas trees and seasonal catering await your arrival at Hever Castle over the festive season.

As dusk falls, the gardens and grounds are spectacularly transformed into an illuminated winter wonderland. The Guthrie Pavilion will be adorned with traditional Christmas decorations. Upon arrival, you will be greeted with a welcome drink before being seated for a sumptuous Christmas dinner. After dinner it’s time to dance the night away, enjoy the music and bar before departing at 1am.

Groups of any size are welcome and groups will be seated together. Tables seat up to a maximum of ten guests per table and there is a possibility, dependent on number of tickets sold, that smaller groups will share tables.

See shared Christmas parties tariffs.

Dates available: Thursday 7th December.

Contact Kate Rowbottom for further details on krowbottom@hevercastle.co.uk or 01732 861744.


Alternative Christmas party options are also available at Hever Castle Golf Club.
