We know that times have been extremely hard recently, with the rising cost of living causing worry across the Country. Therefore we have decided to make sure that every family, no matter what your circumstances are, can have a wonderful festive day out this Christmas! Between 1st – 23rd December, it will be free to enter the park to enjoy our lovely decorations, birds and animals… no catches, no ties! Start your journey down Candy Cane Lane, into the Grinch’s Lair to get creative in the Busy Elves Workshop. Then make your way around our park to meet the birds and animals waiting to see you. Don’t forget we’re looking after Santa’s Reindeer too, so go and see them relaxing before their busy Christmas Eve!
If you did want to donate to our charity by joining in our extra activities or seeing Santa in his grotto, then there’s optional add-ons when buying your free entry on our ticket page. Santa will be in his cosy log cabin grotto every Tues, Fri, Sat and Sun throughout December (please check timings below). Follow the fairy lit walk to post your letter in his letter box and see Santa for a special gift. Plus, Boston College Elves are joining us to meet the children alongside Elsa for a fantastic photo opportunity.
