The perfect family get-together… 

Explore Harlaxton Manor this Christmas as we open our doors for the last time this year. Look forward to some time together with family and friends and discover Harlaxton Manor’s festively decorated state rooms, with beautifully decorated Christmas trees in each room. Learn the history of the Manor and be entertained by our joyous singers and pianist.  

As part of the festive open house, if you have made the nice list this year, Father Christmas and his festive helpers will be making appearances throughout the day in Santa’s Grotto. Spot our naughty elves hidden around the Manor! 

This Christmas the Manor will be serving a range of festive food and drinks which can be purchased during your visit. Including mince pies, Christmas cake, pulled pork rolls, vegan and gluten free alternatives will be available. Very excitingly this year, we will be selling American Festive Candy!
