Festive Sunday Lunch

20 November @ 12:00 pm - 18 December @ 2:30 pm


Take a seat in the Old Library and tuck into a delicious two-course festive Sunday lunch.

The chefs will be using the best winter vegetables from the nearby Walled Garden. And if that’s not enough – peruse the titles on the bookshelves and enjoy a good read.

Tickets cost £30 per person, including a two-course meal (main and dessert) with a glass of wine (non-alcoholic options available), and tea or coffee to finish. Booking is essential.

This event is not included within our Auckland Castle Christmas ticket, which must be booked in addition.
