Come and join in the seasonal spirit as you enjoy festive family entertainment! Follow the new nutcracker trail, have a go at children’s activities and meet Mother Christmas. Book your grotto spot to meet Santa and explore the Castle, dressed especially for Christmas, with its talking portraits, hands-on exhibitions and nostalgic room sets.
While discovering the Castle’s stories, look out for the nutcrackers hidden around the site on the Nutcracker trail, make a festive craft to take home and pop into the Victorian School Room to write your letter to Santa. Join Joey the Juggler and Looby Lou as they show off their juggling and balloon modelling skills, plus test your own skills in their Have-a-go sessions!
Come and meet Mother Christmas at 11.30am and 2.00pm for a chat in the Saloon and receive a little extra treat.
Visit on Saturday to enjoy the festive sound of bells chiming with the wonderful Hand Bell Ringers, while Sunday visitors can listen to lovely performances from Wilden Choir.
Meet Santa! Book tickets for your exclusive 10-minute time slot to meet Santa in his grotto with no queueing required. Have a chat with him, share what you’d like for Christmas, take photographs (don’t forget to ask our head elf to take one with the whole family!) and receive a gift addressed personally to your child.
