Suitable For


Two girls running through the illuminated rose dell at Brodsworth Hall

Please note that the Victorian kitchen is closed at the moment as we complete conservation work to the roof lantern. The rest of the Servants' Wing is open weekends as usual.

Get the family together and make the most of winter evenings this Christmas time as you explore the grounds of Brodsworth Hall after dark. Wrap up warm and head out on an adventure through a fairy themed wonderland of light, colour and sound.

You'll be greeted by a magical talking cedar tree as you set out on an enchanting trail around the gardens. Play a tune on the 'illumaphonium' along your way and watch as your melody makes the 6ft high chime bars light up.

Wander beneath illuminated archways and follow streams of fairy lights through the Dell. Stop off at the Target House to toast marshmallows over the fire and warm up with a festive drink. Stumble upon a fairy village and if you listen very carefully you might even hear the fairies chattering.

And the delight doesn't stop there - at the end of the trail find a traditional fairground with rides and vintage games. If you're feeling peckish after your enchanted adventure there'll be a BBQ and food stalls serving sweet treats and festive drinks too.

Book early to meet Father Christmas in the Hall. He'll be taking time out of his busy schedule to tell festive tales and deliver gifts to all of the girls and boys who've been good this year. An additional charge of £6 applies per child to see Father Christmas and pre-booking is essential, please call 0370 333 1185 between 9am - 5pm, Mon - Fri. Each Father Christmas session lasts 45 minutes with approximately 35 places available - we recommend booking early to avoid disappointment.
