EXPERIENCE the festive magic of Burton Agnes Hall this Christmas, lovingly decorated by the Cunliffe-Lister family.

Whilst visiting the Hall, young visitors are encouraged to find the homemade felt snowman dolls that are hidden in each room and are invited to visit Father Christmas by the fireside every Christmas opening weekend in December, from 12pm-4pm, at which every child will receive a special Christmas gift.
