supper. Children can help prepare a glass of sherry to leave out for Father Christmas. Night owls can venture out to midnight mass at Winchester Cathedral, one of the largest cathedrals in Europe. On Christmas morning, after breakfast, presents are opened and the first glasses of champagne are poured. The fires are lit, the house is toasty and in the kitchen preparations for a feast are underway. Christmas lunch is a spectacle, kicking off with canapés and drinks in the drawing room. The dining table is laden with berries and boughs from the gardens, ready for a lavish seven-course feast. The chef uses local seasonal ingredients and produce, the organic turkey is carved at the table and the final flourish is a homemade Christmas pudding. Watch the Queen’s Speech in the cosy Library and then, as twilight draws in, pull on your wellies for a romp around the grounds to gather chestnuts for roasting over the outside fire pit. The day ends with a light evening supper.
