Celebrate the Season in Style at Rose Castle

Raise your hand if you’re looking forward to Christmas! Why not get in the mood by booking one of our very merry festive events? 

We know a thing or two about elevating a Christmas event from a nice day out to an unforgettable experience. Rose Castle is a remarkable venue; nestled in acres of stunning secluded countryside, yet easy to get to from the M6, it boasts hundreds of years of fascinating history, and it looks spectacular, inside and out. At Christmas, the castle will be resplendent in traditional festive decor, the open fires will be roaring, and the lights will be twinkling.
