Charles Dickens

All visitors will receive a small token gift from Santa & craft activity to take home.

Numbers of guests in each time slot are also limited to ensure that everyone has time to enjoy each part of the trail and there is little to no queueing


“So lovely - A lot of thought and care clearly went into the planning - Thank you for making Christmas so magical”
