It’s getting to feel a lot like Christmas with just a week to go until the big day, but if you haven’t taken the kids to meet Santa yet, here are some of the best spots to find him this week.
Christmas at LEGOLAND Windsor
Father Christmas and his elves will be visiting with a big sack of LEGO gifts for little guests on weekends throughout November and December. As well as a visit to Santa’s grotto, where every child will receive a free gift, guests can enjoy plenty of rides and attractions. And the elves will be looking for little helpers to make Christmas cards, decorate biscuits and write letters to Father Christmas…!
Magical Christmas at Drayton Manor Park, Staffordshire
A magical, unforgettable Christmas awaits the kids at Drayton Manor Park. The Thomas Land experience stays open for the festivities and the children still get to use the best part of the park. There’s ice skating, the Christmas parade, the amazing Polar Express in 4D and you can meet Father Christmas in the Castle of Dreams, so wrap up and head up to Manor Park.
Christmas Kingdom at the Celtic Manor Resort, Wales
Enjoy a wonderful winter adventure filled with the magic and sparkle of the festive season, when this Christmas Kingdom returns. Not only will you get to meet Santa, you’ll also visit Mrs Claus in her kitchen and help decorate her gingerbread Christmas trees. Write your letter to Santa and post it in his North Pole post box, and visit his reindeer who will be taking easy ahead of their round the world tour on Christmas Eve.
Santa’s Winter Workshop at all Center Parcs
The Center Parcs Villages will fall under a captivating spell and magically transform into Winter Wonderlands this Christmas. Adorned in a glittering array of twinkling lights and decorations, the woodlands will come alive. There will be lots of seasonal activities as well as the opportunity for the kids to meet Santa.
Christmas fun at The Canterbury Tales, Kent
The award-winning Canterbury Tales attraction will be transformed into a medieval wonderland for visitors to explore as they step back in time to 14th-century England. The whole family can dress up in elf costumes for a photo opportunity, and youngsters will be able to write down and post their Christmas wishes to Santa and visit him in his grotto, where there will be a gift for every child.
Lapland at Windsor
It’s back to Windsor again for Lapland where you’ll find snow-covered trees, log cabins and lots of friendly elves. Kids can make toys in Santa’s workshop and be whisked off to meet Mother Christmas, who decorates gingerbread with them. The main square boasts a beautifully lit skating rink, with shops, restaurants and the addition of real huskies and reindeer which the children can touch. Christmas elves will be taking the kids to meet Father Christmas in his cabin, along a magical secret pathway through the enchanted forest!
