Celebrate Christmas Victorian-era style with a magical festive display at historic Saumarez Homestead.
The Victorian age placed great importance on family, so it follows that Christmas was celebrated at home and Saumarez Homestead was no exception. From Christmas cards to decorated trees and Christmas crackers, many of our best-known Christmas traditions are products of the Victorian era.
To celebrate this magical time of year, Saumarez Homestead will be dressed in its festive finery reflecting Christmases from long ago. Step back in time with spruce and ivy and mistletoe from the extensive Saumarez gardens, handmade ornaments and tree decorations.
