Fancy a break from the hustle and bustle of the modern Christmas experience? Why not take some time out with us to encounter some 17th-Century winter traditions?

Dyrham Park’s Christmas experience will provide a step away from the tinsel, baubles and trees of today.

Coming here will is a chance to learn about some of traditions enjoyed back in the 17th Century as well as giving you a chance to stretch your legs, take stock and reconnect with nature.

There will be church choirs at weekends, children’s trails through the parkland, a poetry trail and subtle, scented decorations crafted from plants and dried flowers from around the park and garden.

Visitor Experience Manager Ann Fiddler explained: ‘We know that Christmas and the run up to it can be a manic time and at Dyrham this year we’re offering visitors the chance to do something a bit different. You can forget tinsel, baubles and Father Christmas but we can offer a selection of trails and some interesting crafts as well as some choirs and a bit of shopping of course!’
