Visitors are invited to weave their way round the grounds, starting in front of the Stables, where a host of delicious food and drink stalls will be in situ, before moving into the Lower Courtyard, where a Gingerbread House will be on display amongst the artisan stalls. Each room will feature a selection of makers and producers, with food in the Medieval Kitchens, a gifting area in the Earl’s Apartment and a magnificent Christmas tree in The Banqueting Hall. Visitors can wander out into the Elizabethan gardens, where there will be more stalls on two of the terraces, lit by fairy lights, before heading into The Long Gallery and Great Chamber and back out into the Lower Courtyard.
