The castle-like palace near Surrey with a Christmas market where families can stay the night

In just a few days, a stunning Christmas utopia near Surrey will open its doors to the public. Built in 1883, the castle-like mansion with turrets and towers will be fully decked out with stunning displays and decorations for Christmas this year.

Waddesdon Manor in Buckinghamshire is days away from opening with a dazzling light show with animated projections appearing on the facade of the mansion, on November 22. This year, it features themed decorations that tell the tales of Alice in Wonderland, Peter Pan, and the Snow Queen’s kingdom from the film The Lion. The witch and the wardrobe.

For the first time since 2019, the grand bachelor suite in the sprawling mansion has reopened. There, guests can find magical trails and explore the Mad Hatter’s Tea Party and Captain Hook’s Treasure Cave, as well as the Ice Queen’s Snow Kingdom.

After sunset, an illuminated light trail will begin in the Aviary Gardens, with interactive installations, glowing umbrellas and twinkling stars. Lanterns shaped like tundra creatures include wolves and puffins, with the aurora borealis overhead.

Booths with the sights and smells of Christmas wafting through the air can be found in front of the house inside gorgeous wooden chalets with a mansion backdrop and a massive 20-foot Christmas tree covered in lights. Visitors will be able to try aromatic barbecue skewers, doughy churros and of course no Christmas market is complete without spiced mulled wine.
