Christmas 2020 with Lumley Castle

Christmas All Wrapped Up

At Lumley Castle Hotel we boast a fantastic tradition of celebrating Christmas & New Year. For over 40 years we’ve celebrated the festive season with creativity and flair to ensure you have an amazing experience time and time again.

For Christmas 2020 myself and the Lumley Team have had to be really creative to ensure Lumley can contribute to your Christmas in ways not previously considered. Across December we’ll be taking our Santa’s Grotto on the road as well personally delivering all festive afternoon teas booked. In addition to this we’re already taking significant orders for our Christmas Day Lunch collection as well as our incredibly popular Drive Thru which is open for orders and collection from Wednesday through to Sunday each week.

This might not be the Christmas we expected, nor planned for. But we will make it merry, special and unforgettable for you.
