Time Out says
Posted: Mon Nov 25 2013
A time capsule in which visitors are immersed in a unique form of theatre. Guests are escorted, in total silence, into candlelit chambers from which, apparently, their eighteenth- and nineteenth-century inhabitants have only just withdrawn. Powerful historical sensations and a family saga add up to a magical journey through time – specifically, Christmas time, as the house will be decked out accordingly for this festive season. The Silent Night visits, which take place in the evening (you must send your first and second choice time slot requests in beforehand), include a wander around the house in silence, after which you can choose any room with a roaring fire to be seated in and enjoy a mulled wine and mince pie. Plus curatorial staff will be on hand to answer any questions. NB: This event is unsuitable for children.
