THE NATIONAL TRUST AT CHRISTMAS
There’s nothing nicer than wrapping up warm and taking in the countryside. And to celebrate the nation’s love for festive strolls, the National Trust has pulled together 12 Walks of Christmas.
FESTIVE STATELY SETTINGS
Enjoy mulled wine, mince pies and a spot of shopping in a historic National Trust property. Waddesdon Manor’s Christmas Fair, above (Buckinghamshire; Wednesday to Sunday, 10 November to 16 December), includes food, crafts and gifts, plus a magical light show, and is one of many taking place around the country.
Celebrate Christmases past at Berrington Hall’s Christmas with the Georgians event (Herefordshire; weekends from 17 November to 1 January). The hall and its grounds will be decked out in Georgian fashion with outdoor carriage rides and a fun children’s trail. For details visit national trust.org.uk.
