Type: Children's

Our Father Christmas experience

There are letters to sort, presents to deliver, and a very important sleigh to prepare. Father Christmas is keen to meet you and your children, so they can help.

Inside the cosy tent you’ll get to see ‘behind the scenes’, including the elves’ bunkbeds, the pigeonholes full of children’s letters, and all the stockings laid out ready for the big day.

After settling down for a story beside an open fire, each child can enjoy a special moment with the man in red. 

Booking essential  www.edenproject.com
