Christmas at Ripley Castle

Come and enjoy the build up to Christmas with us here on the Ripley Castle Estate. Enjoy a Cookery Demonstration or a Christmas Party or an Afternoon Tea in the Castle; or bring the little ones (if they have been good) to meet the man himself in his magical grotto. The Tea Room, Courtyard Shops and The Boar’s Head will all also be open on the run up to the big day, so whether you join us for a special occasion, to treat yourself, to party with friends or colleagues or to simply wander around the grounds in the peace and quiet, followed by a cup of tea and a cake. Ripley has something for everyone this Christmas.
