Celebrate Christmas 1823

4th December 2021 - 19th December 2021

Christmas 1823 in the historic house ends on 19th December 2021. The historic house will then be closed until March 1st. See our Christmas Opening Times for more info.

Step back in time this December to experience Abbotsford at Christmas in the winter of 1823-4. A season of celebrations following the completion of the house and gardens.

Explore interiors dressed beautifully for Christmas, see our Library tree with a literary twist and follow in the footsteps of Scott’s historic house guests as you listen to a special edition of our audio tour on your mobile device.  

Plus our childrens trail will keep little ones entertained, can they spot all the Christmas characters around the house for a prize at the end of the tour?

All entry tickets to our house, chapel & gardens are currently half price thanks to Visit Scotland’s Days Out Incentive Scheme. Available while offer lasts.
