Between Christmas and New Year, English Heritage will be opening the doors to more historic properties than ever before, allowing families across the country to burn off pent-up festive steam in the most incredible of surroundings, from spectacular winter-gardens and landscapes, to atmospheric castles and ornately-decorated houses.
Burn off festive steam in incredible surroundings
A total of 22 of England’s historic sites will be open between December 27 and December 31 including Dover Castle in Kent, Eltham Palace in London and Kenilworth Castle in Warwickshire.
