An Edwardian Country House Party – Nostell at Christmas 2012

We hope that you had a Very Merry Christmas in 2012 and are enjoying the start of the new year. We had a lovely time preparing Nostell Priory for its annual Christmas opening, and thought we’d share with you some of the photographs that we took. We certainly enjoyed hosting an Edwardian Country House Party for visitors. Enjoy!

Beautiful Christmas tree in the Top Hall, with handmade decorations by our volunteers

Wreaths and swags above the fireplace

Butler’s tray with drink aplenty – care for some Champagne?

Horse and carriage rides

Getting ready for the main meal – I hope you like lobster!

Wrapping presents in the Library

Afternoon tea in the Tapestry Room

Sherry in the Billiard Room

A gorgeous Edwardian State Dining Room, set out for the lobster starter

Father Christmas and his ready are all set to deliver presents – I hope you’ve been good this year!

We hope that next year Christmas at Nostell Priory is as good as this one! Look out for more information about Christmas 2013 dates and events on our website.
