Father Christmas

There are many wonderful opportunities to catch a glimpse of Father Christmas and create some magical memories for all the family. He will be touching down in some stunning locations across the Harrogate District during the festive season.

From the Cistercian Monastery at Fountain’s Abbey to his own log cabin all the way from Lapland at Stockeld Park, you will find a truly wide and varied mix of experiences to be enjoyed.

You can combine your trip to Father Christmas’s grotto with a day out packed with activities to get all the family in the Christmas spirit, and keep the little ones active as the dark afternoons begin to roll in.

Why not enjoy Christmas stories with him in the cosy library of the big hall at Beningbrough Hall, Gallery and Gardens.

You can also visit him at RHS Garden Harlow Carr, enjoy the Santa Special Steam Train at Bolton Abbey and this year he’s even hosting his own Breakfast Panto show!

Please remember he does get extremely busy at this time of year, so pre-booking at the venues below is advisable and in most cases essential.
