The magical season is here! See Bamburgh Castle’s state rooms transformed by award-winning theatrical designer Charlotte Loyd Webber into a spectacular festive extravaganza inspired by The Twelve Days of Christmas.
Prepare to enter an enchanted, whimsical world inside the Castle, with lords-a-leaping, swans-a-swimming, gold rings gleaming, a partridge in a pear tree – and so much more – in this glorious installation which celebrates the lyrics of the famous Christmas carol and its festive traditions. Suitable for all ages, this is the largest indoor Christmas experience in the north-east of England and not to be missed!
Visit our Christmas Shop for decorations, gifts and cards that will bring a sprinkle of Bamburgh Castle magic to any home this festive season. Meanwhile our Clock Tower Café and Tack Room Kiosk are laden with scrumptious home-baked Christmas goodies to feast upon.

The magic of Christmas is returning to Bamburgh Castle this year. Father Christmas will be with us from the 19th November until the 23rd December in his very special festive grotto.
A visit to see Father Christmas is an additional £19.95 per child plus the regular ticket price to the castle – see the link below (please note we may have to restrict the amount of adults that can accompany the child/children to 2 adults) Each child will sit with Father Christmas for a personalised magical experience and will receive a special gift which is exclusive to Bamburgh Castle.
*Entry to the Grotto is only valid with a ticket to see Father Christmas.
*If you have more than one child, or are visiting with friends, please ensure you book both/all into the same time slot (maximum of 4 children per time slot) Father Christmas needs enough time to make sure he can speak to every child and he doesn’t wear a watch! If you have more than 4 children in your party please ensure you book an additional time slot.
You must purchase admission tickets to Bamburgh Castle in order to see Father Christmas. You can purchase admission tickets by clicking this link Pre-book your admission tickets here or you can purchase them on the day at the ticket office.
Festive wreath making at Bamburgh Castle 11am and 1.30pm
Our Festive Wreath Making classes are back and will be hosted by Sharon Wright from Wild With Love, local award-winning florist – Wildwithlove.co.uk
Sharon is a born and bred Northumbrian lass and has lived in the Alnwick area for several years now. She has a passion for the natural world (and Christmas!) and this is reflected in her wreath making and floral arrangements.
You will be making living wreaths made on a frame. They are incredibly long-lasting and you can, if you want to, leave your wreath hanging on your door long into the new year (the Royal Family do!)
We will be using a variety of foliage including local ivy (from Bamburgh Castle), holly, cupress and eucalyptus to name just a few. There will be a huge selection of decorative items to choose from to add to your wreath to make it truly individual including pine cones, dried fruits, cinnamon sticks, baubles, ribbons, berries and festive novelties. You can even colour co-ordinate your ribbon to your front door or your other Christmas decor if you like!
The possibilities are endless…..
The session lasts around 2 hours, will take place in the magnificent King’s Hall and includes all materials to create your wreath
*Please note no food or drink can be consumed in The King’s Hall
