Christmas at Craigdarroch Castle

Beginning December 1st, experience Christmas in the Castle complete with traditional decorations recalling Victorian-era seasonal splendor.

Curator Bruce Davies and the museum’s staff assist longtime decorator Sherry Kerr to meticulously evoke Christmases past in the castle’s period rooms. On your tour you will see many vintage toys including antique games, wooden blocks and a small cast-iron wood stove under the tree in the drawing room. Mantles are decorated in the bedrooms, there are several Christmas trees throughout the home and the dining table is set for a formal dinner complete with turkey, ham and a boar’s head on a platter.

As an added bonus and at no additional cost to regular self-guided tour fees, you can enjoy music performed by local musicians at certain times of the day. Families with small children will enjoy music and clowning around at one of three performances by Cam and Daisy. The performance schedule will be available in early November to help you plan your visit accordingly!
