Top tips on planning your visit

  • To avoid the crowds visit on a weekday, we are open until 7pm – weekends can be super busy!
  • We advise to pre-book tickets, weekends in particular can be very busy and Santa at the North Pole gets booked up very quickly.
  • Please have your tickets ready to be scanned on arrival.
  • If you want to visit Wildlife World please be aware last entry is at 3.15pm, closing at 4pm. This is to suit the animals natural sleeping habits.
  • All Lotherton annual membership holders MUST show their membership card as well as ticket
  • Pick up a map from the ticket booth when you arrive and make the most of the experience by following the trail around the site
  • Follow the signage around the site
  • Follow the twinkling lights and stay on the lit paths at all times for your safety
  • Step carefully on the path and feel free to bring a torch or buy one from the shop
  • If you book to see Santa in the North Pole arrive 5 minutes prior to your booked time (situated on the far side of the Christmas Courtyard). Additionally, allow yourself plenty of time to get onto the Estate, park the car and walk to the North Pole, situated behind the main Christmas Courtyard. We would advise arriving at Lotherton at least 45 minutes before your booked time slot.
  • Enjoy a hot drink or snack at Elf Village while the children take part in activities with the elves (activity tokens to be bought in the Elf Village Christmas Shop – £3 per token or £10 for 4)
  • Have fun on the Twelve Day Walk, some of our installations you can play with and interact with. But please try not to break them!
  • Respect the fairies in their beautiful handcraft village in the Dell and ensure dogs are on leads and children stay on the paths and do not climb on the rockery or houses.
