Christmas at Browsholme

Christmas at Browsholme

Christmas Festivities

Browsholme Hall has been the ancestral home of the Parkers, Bowbearers of the Forest of Bowland since Tudor times. Christmas has been celebrated here for over 500 years. Truly a hidden jewel in the crown of the county palatine of Lancashire.

Today it is still a home and we invite visitors to share the unique atmosphere of an historic house decorated for the family. Visitors will see Christmas trees, garlands, holly and of course ivy that encapsulates the spirit of the festive season. All complemented by the warmth of candlelight and open fires. Guided tours (c.1 hour) are tailored for all ages and interests. The tours captivate all those who enjoy the rich heritage that this unique and ancient Lancastrian home has to offer.

By arrangement the award winning raconteur Simon Entwistle of ‘Top Hat’ tours can also bewitch visitors with ghostly stories and other Lancashire tales of Christmas past. Visitors also have the opportunity to enjoy homemade refreshments in the tearoom within our beautifully restored 18th C Tithe Barn and browse our ‘pop up’ shop of artisan gifts.
