Christmas at Blithewold: Highlights of the Holidays Tours
Thursdays, 11:30 a.m. – 12:30 p.m., December 5, 12, 19, & 26
Blithewold is now offering weekly guided tours of the beautifully decorated Mansion during the Christmas at Blithewold season. Each year, the Mansion features a new theme. Then the rooms are individually designed and decorated by teams of talented volunteers, each room illustrating some variation of the chosen theme. Join our experienced tour guides to explore not only the history of the house and the family but how family stories interweave with the decorations and ornaments and ribbons and greenery. As a feature of the tours, participants will be able to learn more about some of the items from our special collections, on display only during the holiday season. Registration in advance is preferred. Walk-ins are taken on a first come, first served basis since our tours must be limited to smaller groups.
Departures: Tours depart from the front hall of the Mansion promptly at the time listed.
Accessibility: Blithewold has limited access for wheelchairs. Call for information.
