Arlington Court is decked out for a traditional Victorian Christmas and there is plenty for the whole family to enjoy throughout December.

Arlington Christmas runs this weekend and on the weekends of December 9-10 plus 16-17, plus December 18-19, with Father Christmas also in residence from December 16-19.

Visitors will be greeted by an 18-foot traditional Christmas tree at the entrance, decorated in bows, baubles, cinnamon sticks and candle lights.

A stroll around will reveal the Arlington family Christmas through the decades, with the dining room set for an 1840s Christmas.

Christmas is always a magical time at Arlington Court. Christmas is always a magical time at Arlington Court.

There is a great deal more to see, with the tearoom decorated in Victorian style and serving seasonal treats.

Throughout the Christmas season there will be an outdoor advent calendar trail. Families can pick up a copy from reception and start searching around the grounds for the lovely handmade reindeer.

In the Carriage Museum, the original knitted mice have been joined by their Canadian cousins and children can have fun helping solve the puzzle of which carol they are singing.

Festive crafts sessions will be running in the garages from 10.30am-12.30pm on the days Arlington is open – have a go at making your own pomander.
