WHAT IS INVOLVED IN THE CHRISTMAS EXPERIENCE?

Children meet Santa, then choose from an array of wonderful gifts in his Toy Shop. Be greeted by the Head Elf for story time and don’t forget to bring your camera for a photo opportunity in Santa’s Sleigh! Create a wish to hang on Mother Shipton’s Wishing Tree and post a letter to the North Pole. As you take in the magical surroundings treat yourself to hot drinks, mince pies, and pizza. Children can also buy and decorate their very own Christmas treat. 

Wonderful gifts and decorations are available in our new pop-up Christmas shop.
