Christmas at Haddon Hall is always a truly memorable occasion, and we’re certain that 2017 will be no exception. To make planning your trip that little bit easier, we’ve put together a handy guide to all things festive on the Haddon Estate…
Winter Artisan Market
17th November 2017 – 19th November 2017
The perfect opportunity to make a magical start to your Christmas shopping, our Winter Artisan Market will last for three days between Friday 17th November – Sunday 19th November.
Over 100 local artisans will be showcasing their unique creations throughout our historic rooms, making it our biggest market to date. You’ll find a list of stallholders, along with further information, at http://ow.ly/DQ4d30gt0oy.
The admission fee will be £5 to cover entry to the Hall (usually £14.50) and parking will operate on a one-in-one-out basis, so we recommend that visitors use public transport wherever possible.
