A Very Georgian Christmas

Step inside York Mansion House and be transported back in time to a magical Georgian Christmas. Experience the grandeur of this beautiful historic building as it is transformed into a festive wonderland, adorned with lavish decorations and filled with the joyful sounds of carols and laughter.

As you enter the mansion, the scent of freshly baked mince pies and spiced mulled wine fills the air. The grand entrance hallway is lined with garlands of holly, ivy, and mistletoe, creating a welcoming and festive atmosphere.

Make your way to the magnificent ballroom, where a large Christmas tree takes center stage, adorned with handmade decorations and twinkling lights. As you admire the tree, the York Philharmonic Orchestra begins to play a selection of classical Christmas tunes, filling the room with their melodic sounds.

Take a stroll through the opulent dining room, where a long table is beautifully set for a sumptuous Christmas feast. The table is adorned with delicate china, gleaming silverware, and sparkling crystal glasses. The room is filled with the aroma of roast turkey, spiced ham, and all the traditional trimmings.

In another corner of the mansion, visit the charming drawing room, where a crackling fire warms the room and invites you to sit down and relax. The room is decorated with elegant floral arrangements, intricate tapestries, and shimmering candlelight, creating a cozy ambiance. Here, you can enjoy a cup of hot chocolate or mulled wine as you listen to enchanting tales of Christmas past from the Georgian era.

If you venture upstairs, you'll find the children's nursery transformed into a magical toy workshop. The walls are adorned with hand-painted murals of dancing teddy bears and dolls, and rows of beautifully crafted traditional toys line the shelves. Children can try their hand at making their own festive decorations, guided by skilled artisans dressed in Georgian attire.

Don't forget to pay a visit to the Mansion House's grand library, where a storytelling session brings classic Christmas tales to life. Gather around the crackling fire as a master storyteller regales you with stories of Ebenezer Scrooge or the famous night before Christmas.

Before leaving, take a moment to visit the gift shop, filled with unique Georgian-inspired trinkets, ornaments, and keepsakes. Here, you can find the perfect Christmas gift for your loved ones, steeped in the rich history and charm of Georgian York.

As you step back out onto the streets of York, your heart filled with joy and Christmas spirit, you can't help but feel grateful for this magical journey back in time. The Mansion House, with its grandeur and festive atmosphere, truly captures the essence of a Very Georgian Christmas in York.

A lovely day out for all the family when staying at Holiday Homes in York.
