We have our Elves and Santa waiting to greet you but you can make the visit even more magical by joining in with the festive spirit.
We recommend the following to make your experience with us extra speical:
Wearing Christmas jumpers, costumes or your best clothes
Writing a special letter to Santa
Making him a thank you card for the gifts he left you last year.
All of these will help us to make your visit even more magical.
Santa always has a gift for all good children, including babies. Children visiting Santa want everyone to receive a gift and their baby brother or sister has been good too and shouldn't be left out.
Due to the interactiveness and engagement of the Santa experience we provide, we do recommend that you leave your pushchairs and buggies at our Santa check-in area, rather than bringing them through the journey. That way you may have more space to enjoy all the photo points and may find it easier take part in the activities.
