PERFECT PLACE TO PICK UP A CHRISTMAS GIFT

Visitors to National Trust Croome can enjoy some leisurely shopping without the crowds this Christmas. Croome’s Christmas market and shop, near Worcester, are the perfect place to pick up a Christmas gift.

“We looking forward to welcoming back our stall holders to our Christmas market again this year,” said Becky Wilks, Croome’s Programming Officer. “There will be lots of unique gifts for visitors to choose from.”

Visitors will be able to browse over 20 stalls selling drinks, cheeses, crafts, jewellery and more on Saturday 2 and Sunday 3 December between, 10am-4pm.

The on-site shop is also a great place to find that perfect pressie with many gifts for the whole family this Christmas and is open every day between 10am-4pm.

“We have some lovely new ranges this Christmas,” said Tina King, Croome’s Retail Manager. “The inspiration for our new ‘Bohemian Circles’ range is drawn from the bohemian lifestyle of a small group called the Bloomsbury set, in the early decades of the twentieth century. From floral to abstract the exclusive designs offer a beautiful palette of rich colours across our many ranges from ladies scarves and bags to cushions and homeware there is something to appeal to everyone. Collaborating with artist Dee Hardwicke the Trust has also introduced a nature-inspired range of ceramic and textiles featuring a robin, hare, owl and squirrel. As the nights draw in our Winter Twilight range captures the silhouetted woodland and the rolling mists of some of the wild landscapes in our care.”

Both events have free on-site parking and free entry.

Every penny spent at Croome such as entrance fees, buying a cup of tea or a gift in the shop helps generate an income which goes towards the restoration of the property.

Croome is open throughout the year. The park and lakeside are open from 10am until 4.30pm and Croome Court is open from 11am to 4pm every day. Disabled parking nearby. Normal admission applies.
