Haddon Hall Christmas Markets 2018

The Winter Artisan Markets at Haddon Hall are always a magical experience with the remarkable grounds adding an extra touch of charm to the festive event. This year, the Haddon Hall Christmas markets are set to be as fantastic as ever, so why not pay them a visit between the 15th to the 18th of November and enjoy the festivities?

Haddon Hall has been the set of many films and TV series thanks to its gorgeous grounds. The country manor home is a marvel of Tudor design and is said to be one of the best stately homes to have survived the period. During Christmas, the entire estate is decked out in festive décor to create the ideal backdrop for the market stalls. Here, you can buy a variety of different crafts, art, food and more from skilled, local artisans.

Over 80 stalls will be open to browse through during the 3-day event. The wide selection of gifts will ensure that you find something for everyone on your shopping list. On November 14th, there is also a special VIP Winter Artisan Market Evening between 6pm and 8pm.  Entry is by ticket only and these cost £10.

Candlelight Tours

In addition to the Christmas markets, Haddon Hall are once again offering their wonderful Candlelight Tours. Visitors are invited to enjoy a glass of mulled wine and a mince pie before walking the Hall with the knowledgeable guides when it is at its most atmospheric. Haddon comes alive with Christmas spirit by candlelight, allowing you to take in the beauty of the rooms dressed for the festive season, during twilight hours.

This year you can join tours at half hourly intervals between 6pm and 8pm on the evenings of December 6th, 7th, 8th, 13th, 14th, 15th, 17th, 18th, 19th and 20th. On selected evenings, you can make your evening extra special by combining your tour with a delicious seasonal meal in Haddon Restaurant. Select from either the 6pm or 8pm tour to combine with a meal at 7pm on the evenings of the 7th, 8th, 13th or 19th of December. (Please note that booking is essential for these events and must be made online)

As you can see, Haddon Hall is an unbeatable venue to visit during the pre-Christmas period. Come along to experience one of their incredible festive events for yourself.
