Have your say

This festive season you can take the family on a magical adventure with a trip to the Swan Queen’s Ball at Motisfont House, Romsey.

As the Swan Queen prepares for her annual winter ball, follow the trail through Mottisfont’s grounds and house while you attempt to solve the mystery of the Swan Queen’s secret.

From 10am until dusk, wander through the elegant trees lined with themed decoration created by artists, explore the the beautifully decorated rooms of Mottisfont house and gaze in wonder at stunning evening gowns from the bird-inspired Talons and Tiaras exhibition.

Kids can also let off steam outdoors before making masks, tiaras and crowns and dressing up for the ‘ball’. Visit nationaltrust.org.uk/mottisfont for more details.
