With an 110ft (33m) redwood Christmas tree billed as the UK’s tallest decorated with 1,800 lights being hung from its branches at Wakehurst Place, where better than to celebrate your Christmas party?! The Christmas tree was planted in 1890 and was first decorated 23 years ago- Wakehurst Place have been celebrating the festive party season for longer than you and I and really know how to throw a party!

Wakehurst Place is a stunning Elizabethan mansion with ornamental gardens managed by Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew, and surrounded by 465 acres of country estate. The Grade 1 listed mansion was previously owned by Lord Wakehurst and the Price family but is now owned by the National Trust and offers a variety of both intimate and spacious venues. The venue has a variety of event spaces perfect for Christmas celebrations! These include:

  • The Gallery- The Gallery leads out onto the stunning formal lawns, and each room in the Mansion has a spectacular view of the surrounding grounds- giving that wow factor for your guests this Christmas
  • The Dining Room- Adjoining the Gallery, the Dining Room’s grand wood panelled walls and ornamental carved fire place create a lavish atmosphere for a seated Christmas party. The room opens onto a formal lawn, sectioned off from the public, where guests can sip champagne on arrival.
  • The Magnolia Room-For smaller meetings of two to ten people, the Magnolia Room is the perfect location for a private more intimate Christmas parties where you can be sure you will have no disturbances.
  • The Orange Room- The stunning contemporary glasshouse structure of the Millennium Seed Bank is a refreshing contrast to the historic mansion and is a perfect space for drinks receptions, seated dining or evening receptions.
