Twelve Days of Christmas Woodland Walk,
Stroll on our magical woodland walk, follow our twinkling lit paths and discover the enchanting interactive installations of the Twelve Days of Christmas.
Santa’s North Pole
Journey into the North Pole, our tree-lined home where Santa and his elves have taken up residency for the final weeks preparation before Christmas day. Come and meet our elves, help out in the crafts workshop and even make your own souvenir to take away with you. Our Head Elf will make sure you are looked after during your time there. While you are there take the opportunity to write a postcard to Santa to make sure he knows what you want, and finally meet the big man himself before he visits you again on Christmas Eve. Before you go don’t forget to take a picture or two on our miniature #Elfie sleigh.
This experience is approximately 40 minutes and you will be in a group of 12 whilst in the elf workshop doing crafts until you meet Santa individually with your family.
WE STRONGLY RECOMMEND BOOKING EARLY AS THIS BOOKS UP QUICKLY
Wander down to the Elf Village where young ones can join the elves in making craft activities or listen to stories, and everyone can enjoy a cup of hot chocolate or warm snack under our twinkling canopy.
Christmas stalls on weekends in December with crafts and gifts.
Santa in The Elf Village
If you have a pre-schooler who wants to visit Santa but a full 40 minutes in the North Pole making crafts etc is too much you can visit him when he visits his cosy cabin in The Elf Village on Tuesdays and Wednesdays from 11am – 2pm. Simply pop by The Elf Village between these times on the selected days and you can purchase a ticket to see him from The Little Christmas Shop. Then visit Santa and his elf in his cosy cabin where your little one can meet the big man in red himself in an intimate setting and receive a gift.
