Take a nostalgic trip back in time at one of the finest historic properties in England. Rockingham Castle, near Market Harborough, Northamptonshire, is planning another of its popular Christmas openings this year. The entire castle is decorated as if it is Christmas Eve in the Victorian period. The castle courtyard will be decorated with illuminated trees, there will fires burning in hearths, and in the Great Hall of the castle the table will be laid in anticipation of a Christmas feast.

Guides in Victorian costume lead visitors on a trip into history. Visitors can their Christmas shopping in the castle gift shop, and mince pies and hot drinks will be available in the castle restaurant.
