  • Victorian Christmas at Beaulieu

Step back in time to a magical Victorian Christmas at Beaulieu with Montagu family pantomime rehearsals, craft activities, traditional decorations in every room of Palace House and carols and punch to enjoy from December 16th - January 1st.

Join the Montagu family, played by costumed actors, as they prepare for Christmas festivities in their ancestral family home in 1889. See Palace House come to life as the family and servants rehearse a Christmas Day pantomime and Beaulieu visitors are invited to get on stage to be a part of the seasonal tomfoolery.

Then join Lady Montagu in the Library for craft activities to make your own Christmas card or create a sparkling decoration to hang on the tree. You can even dress up in period-perfect accessories and hats to take your own family portrait photograph through a vintage frame.

Christmas wouldn’t be complete without a special feast, so head to the kitchen to talk to Lord Montagu’s cook and her kitchen maid as they prepare for Christmas Day lunch. Then join in with carol singing around the grand piano in the Lower Drawing Room, before enjoying a glass of mulled punch and warming yourself beside the roaring log fire.

The Christmas journey at Beaulieu begins as soon as you step through the entrance doors to the attraction, where a life-size gingerbread house offers photo opportunities in Visitor Reception.
