Travel back in time and visit the Victorian Montagu family as they prepare for the festive season of 1889.

See what the Victorian Montagu family members would have been at Beaulieu doing as they prepare for the festive season of 1889.

Pose for photos beside the impressive life-size gingerbread house in the visitor reception, before heading out into the grounds to see one of the largest outdoor trees in the New Forest decorated with over 10,000 lights! Follow the fairly-lit pathway to Palace House where you can warm up by the log fire with a glass of mulled punch and watch a re-enactment of Montagu family members rehearsing their Christmas day panto.

If you’re feeling creative visit ‘Lady Montagu’ in the library to create homemade decorations and Christmas cards, or warm up the vocal chords and sing along with the carols in the Lower Drawing Room. Visit the kitchen to see how a Victorian Christmas dinner would have been prepared, and for the younger visitors you can follow the Christmas trail of fun activities around Beaulieu!

Don’t forget to indulge in some Christmas shopping before you leave with local produce and beautiful souvenirs on sale in the two on-site gift shops.
