A long tradition of Christmas opening continues this year in the grounds of Raby Castle.
Although the Castle and Gardens remain closed for their Winter slumber, you can still bring the family along to pick out your freshly cut Raby Estates real Christmas Tree before heading into the Christmas shop, decked out in festive glory to choose new decorations and gifts for all, then settle down in the cosy tearooms to warm up with a hot chocolate before visiting Santa in his woodland grotto (must be pre-booked on-line).
Visit the Christmas Market on November 30th to stock up on seasonal food and tasty treats.
