‪Step back in time to a Victorian Christmas. Book ahead of time to experience staff in periodically costumes as they take you through the castle. We had a very entertaining guide. Also, take the self guided tour around the beautiful estate.‬

‪We had a great time. Booked timed ticket on line. On website there was a section re booking lunch. Contacted castle staff and booked and paid for lunch beforehand.

Volunteers in Victorian dress welcomed us to the castle. We were shown around by The Cook..who told us all about her life at the castle in 1849. She was beautifully attired in period dress. We started in the servants dining room, then through the hall seeing the butlers sitting room, the dining room and sitting room. Most rooms had well decorated Christmas trees. Then up the stairs where we saw the long gallery, and where we were met with the piano playing and sang Christmas carols. Lots of fascinating information, house decorated as if it was in the Elizabeth's era, so no glitz nor plastic decorations

Then down the spiral staircase to the kitchen and then the shop.

Lunch was delicious, hot and tasty and staff were helpful. Table booked for 12.30 and we did not have to wait to be seated.

Afterwards we wandered around the top garden with great views down the valley and then on one of the longer walks around the grounds. Could benefit from better sinage

Everyone asked to wear masks in marquee and castle and when standing up in the restaurant‬

‪Victorian Christmas via coach tour. The tour of the castle was ok but we didn't get a pianist as in the previous review, no Christmas carol sing along, no hot chocolate.
We did get a Christmas meal which was very good, however there were 49 people crambed into a small area for dinner, we were so tightly packed in that we were shoulder to shoulder and back to back, with no room to be served. Each plate had to be passed down the line to the appropriate customer we had to hang about in the cold for an hour before dinner was served.. No covid guidelines adhered to, this was days after a new variations of covid had been announced. Will not be returning.‬

‪Attended the Victorian Christmas event at Rockingham Castle as a surprise birthday treat and I couldn’t have loved it more! I love visiting old country houses and castles as an educational historian and having visited Kensington Palace, Holyrood Palace and Hampton Court Palace also in previous weeks; Rockingham Castle met their match! The added treat of experiencing Rockingham in Victorian times at Christmas was the icing on the cake of which there were a great selection on sale as treats prior to the tour with one of the best hot chocolates you can get, particularly welcoming on a bitterly cold day! We were welcomed by such a welcoming lady giving such clear directions and historical information before the tour began. Prior to the tour we enjoyed a delicious hot chocolate and mince pie in the marquee served by the friendly staff. Joined by live actors in Victorian dress provided the anticipation of what was to come. The tour, led by the butler, was informative and each room just blew us away with the beauty of Christmas decor of times past and the grandness of the castle steeped in history. A live pianist on the most beautiful ornate grand piano appealed to me immensely as a fellow pianist and a thoroughly enjoyable Christmas sing along followed after being serenaded by the classics. Ending in the most quaint of gift shops served by the most friendly Lady of the house.

A scrumptious Christmas dinner in the restaurant finished off the most lovely and memorable day out. Now I’m officially full of Christmas spirit before December even hits!

Magnificence and magnitude of the paintings of grandeur decorating the beautiful oak panelled walls including those of Jane Seymour and Elizabeth I drew intrigue while cementing the links of the castle to Henry VIII. Contrasting this were the beautiful pictures of the present family creating the warmth and homeliness of this castle on the hill.

Read the review of pussface prior to arriving which worried me yet how wrong they were in every way! You’d be mad to miss it if you’re in the Rockingham area!! An extremely happy and satisfied scouser returning home to Liverpool!‬

‪We attended the Victorian Christmas event today (friday 26th november). We had paid upfront for entrance and the tour. On the website and over the phone it said that you could attend the tour, look round the castle, the gift shop etc and there was a place to have a 'festive lunch'. At no point did it say you had to book a table.

When we got there, an hour before our tour time, all there was in place was a horrible cold draughty marquee with a few miserable, cold looking people huddled over takeaway cups of coffee. No cafe, no restaurant. We were told that the resturant was fully booked, so the only thing we could get to eat was in this marquee thing.

However, when we went to order we were told there wasnt actually any food available - no soup, no sandwiches, no sausage rolls, nothing but cake and mince pies. (bear in mind this was 12.30pm, so not even halfway through lunchtime) This was far from ideal - one of our party was diabetic, one is a 12 year old and i need food in order to take medication. i was furious. We ended up settling for two hot chocolates and two mince pies (both horrible) and they charged us £12!!! £12 for two drinks and two mince pies!!!!

i complained to the staff, who were very nice and very apologetic but it really was a massive let down. If we had known that you needed to book, i would have booked (the staff member even told us 'oh usually you dont need to book) or i would have bought my own sandwiches - but we ended up there with nothing.

the tour itself was rubbish - much shorter than usual tours, only saw 4 rooms and for some reason the 'victorian' element was lost slightly as there was hundreds of modern day photos of the family that now owns the estate - it was really weird - why was there modern day photos dotted around when youre trying to sell a victorian event?

To top it off, the disabled parking was a muddy patch of field that our car got stuck in and we had to ask for help to get out.

never ever again, a complete waste of time and money. I will be making a complaint and asking for my money back.‬

‪A group of 32 elderly persons enjoyed the guided Victorian themed tour and meal after the tour at the Castle. All the staff were very friendly, helpful and their service showed how much they enjoyed their work.
The Christmas meal was excellent and plentiful and the staff even adapted the menu to accommodate dietary requirements. Many members of this group are hoping to visit other events in the future.‬

‪We visited today to take part in the Halloween fun and activities. Booked online - very easy to do.
The castle was spookily decorated with a pumpkin trail for children. Each pumpkin was a different “character” e.g. a cat, a mummy, a mermaid etc. A great deal of thought and skill had gone into these decorations. There was a witch or wizard (people dressed up) in each room to add to the spooky atmosphere. There was light projectors, items hanging from the ceilings etc. It was all very well done.
Your “tour” of the castle ended in the gift shop where you could purchase a number of items from a rubber, pencil, other affordable merchandise to more expensive gifts, Christmas decorations etc.
There was also a pumpkin trail around the beautiful gardens, pumpkin rolling down a hill, witch’s hats hoopla and throwing beanbags into a board which had pumpkins with holes in them. Lots to do to keep you occupied.
We had a delicious lunch - you could sit outside or inside. There were jacket potatoes, baguettes, pumpkin risotto, cakes, hot and cold drinks.
At the end of your visit each child got a goody bag of sweets and chocolate.
Every single member of staff and volunteers were helpful, friendly, polite and enthusiastic.
A fantastic day out at a reasonable price.‬

‪What can I say but a big thank you too all the people that helped make our private group booking of 35 such a wonderful experience. It started from the estate team that liased with me over the weeks, they helped and kept us informed throughout. The two tour guides of the castle and gardens were so knowledgeable. The catering by Clare and her team was second to none. We special dietary people, which she made dinners specially for them and they looked just a good. It was relaxed, fun, informative and just great. I don't think they had much to throw away as every plate seemed empty when collected. The staff who served us we also very efficient and helpful. So much so we're planning another private evening meal with them. Thank you all.‬

‪I went with a large group to a guided tour and a candlelit dinner. The tour was really enjoyable and the tour guide very knowledgeable. At first when I saw the menu choices I was disappointed at no vegan option, but when I spoke to them they couldn't have done better at catering for me. They offered to adapt anything on the menu or make something else. The food I had was delicious and I would recommend the tour and meal.‬

‪Wonderful place, beautiful grounds, terrible cafe. We loved the castle and the gardens. Unfortunately the cafe messed up our order three times but insisted it was correct, had run out of several items and had run out of cream but gave no refund on the ‘cream tea’ - the scones were also minuscule.
Otherwise great.‬
