20th November to 3rd January at Hever Castle and Gardens
Enter the magical world of Pinocchio and learn about the importance of bravery and truth as part of the festive celebrations at Hever Castle & Gardens this Christmas.
Outside in the grounds, take a journey along the immersive Christmas trail beginning in Geppetto’s workshop surrounded by his wonderful woodcarving creations.
As well as exploring the captivating displays on the trail, meet characters from the Adventures of Pinocchio as you wander through the gardens (weekends and daily from 8 to 24 December). In front of the Castle, ride the gallopers on the carousel (£2 – card only) then head to the big wheel for views across the grounds (new for 2021, £2 – card only) and have a go at hook a duck (£2 – card only). Enjoy relaxed Christmas shopping in the Gift Shops, and sample delicious festive food in the restaurants and kiosks. The Play Areas will be open (daytime only).
Rooms of the Castle will be traditionally decorated with twinkling lights and welcoming log fires. Castle tickets must be pre-booked (with grounds admission) and are pre-set to start 30 minutes after arrival times to the grounds.
On weekends only (until 24 December), meet the huskies and take your photo as a memento (suggested £2 donation towards Siberian Husky Welfare Association).
Hever Castle is delighted to be working with Make a Wish UK with visitors able to donate to the charity during the Christmas event.
