A retro Christmas is now open!
UPDATED 27.11.21 CLOSED TODAY DUE TO HIGH WINDS. UPDATE TO FOLLOW 9AM TOMORROW.
Kiplin Hall and Gardens is now open for our Retro Christmas event! Open 6 days a week, closed on Thursdays.
Kiplin Hall Trust celebrates 50 years of ownership of the hall with a Retro Christmas! Set to the backdrop of traditional Victorian grandeur, memories of the 1970s will come to life with clashing vibrance. Foil decorations, macrame baubles and best-selling toys from the era will decorate the Hall’s festive displays. Fashions of the day will strut on the Long Gallery catwalk, while the tea room menu serves up nostalgic flavours from yesteryear. Families can explore the grounds seeking out clues on the disco ball trail. Step back to the decade that made modern life. Join us as we go kitsch at Kiplin this Christmas!
You do not need to book, but you can purchase your tickets in advance online HERE. You can still buy tickets in person on arrival. All tickets are valid for 12 months, during opening hours, from the date of your first booking. All tickets include Hall and Gardens. Full Terms and Conditions can be found below.
(Historic Houses members or Yorshires Great House Castles & Gardens pass holders are already ticket holders, so do not need to purchase tickets in advance, simply show your pass on arrival as normal.)
At Kiplin visitors can enjoy exploring the historic rooms, long walks around the lake, the open space of the parkland, and ambles along our woodland paths. Take in the quiet calm of the walled garden in the company of the birds and the bees or choose the perfect spot for a picnic on the rolling lawns or dine at the picnic benches across the estate.

Kiplin is a large site with many historic buildings, bodies of water, and some uneven surfaces. The upper floors of the Hall are accessed by two long shallow staircases. Unfortunately, there is no lift to these levels. For those unable to manage the stairs there are resources and photographs to browse in the Tea Room. Accessible toilets are located to the side of the drive near the clock tower.
Free admission is available to carers/assistants of disabled visitors. Please contact Kiplin for free wheelchair loan – 01748 818178.
Well-behaved dogs are welcome to enjoy the grounds at Kiplin, but must be kept on a lead, and are not permitted entry into the Hall.
Kiplin is fundraising to change the historic gravel in the grounds to self-binding gravel that will make the paths more accessible. Make a donation to help Kiplin make improvements.
