Meet Father Christmas

Sat 16 - Sun 17 Dec 2023

Christmas at the Mansion is a special time, and this year is no different. Join Father Christmas in his grotto and join in this family occasion.

Make the most of the day and spend time discovering the rest of the Mansion, admiring the decorated Christmas trees and festive music. You can also have a go at our Christmas Trail! Seasonal refreshments will be available in the tearoom (charged separately). 

Following a group Christmas game, each child will enjoy a short individual visit with Father Christmas and receive a special gift. Families can join in the other activities before or after visiting Father Christmas. 

This is a family activity for children accompanied by parents/ carers, who must remain with their children throughout. Due to space limitations, only two adults are allowed per child booking. 

The sessions are suitable for children aged 4+ and are located on the ground floor with easy accessibility.
