People visiting Rockingham Castle next week will get a taste of a Victorian Christmas as the estate stages an 1881-inspired event.

The event, which runs from November 16 to 20, will see tours of the grounds which have been transported back in time to the reign of Queen Victoria.

In the family home, the butler, footman and housekeeper will all be dressed in period costume, with yesteryear stories of Victorian family life for visitors.

The Walker’s House restaurant will be selling home-made and locally-sourced dishes for lunch and dinner, with refreshments in the heated marquee.

Visitors are encouraged to enjoy the castle as well as the beautiful gardens and grounds with stunning views across the valley.

The gates open daily ready for the first tour of the castle at 11am.

Tours run every 15 minutes throughout the day with the last tour at 7.30pm.

Tickets cost £8.50 for adults, £3.50 for children aged five to 16, and free for under fives.

Admission to the restaurant, gift shop, grounds and gardens costs £4 per car.
