About the event

Christmas at Mottisfont runs from 25 November - 7 January (closed 24 and 25 December)

10am-4pm (house open from 11am, last entry 30 minutes before closing)

Enter the house to find richly-decorated trees, piles of beautifully-wrapped presents and extravagant floral arrangements created by Mother Christmas herself. Find Father Christmas’s study piled high with letters, and tiptoe past children asleep in decorated bedrooms.

Follow their festive dreams to board the ‘Christmas Express’ into the North Pole, arriving just in time to join the glittering, snow-white polar bear’s ball. 

Experience the wonder of the northern lights over a towering tree sparkling with baubles.

Our family activity trail invites you to become an honorary elf for the day, helping to deliver Christmas wishes.

There's no need to book. Normal property admission price (free for National Trust members, Art Fund members and under-fives), plus £3 per trail.

Christmas can be a busy time at Mottisfont, especially during the holidays. Most of our visitors tend to arrive between 11am and 2pm, which can cause congestion in the car park. If you arrive at 10am you might find the grounds a little quieter, or if you arrive after 2pm, there’s still time to enjoy.

If you have the flexibility, a weekday visit is generally quieter than a weekend, even during school holidays. If you can only visit over the weekend, Saturdays are usually less busy than Sundays.
