Christmas at the Castle


From 27th November, complete your Christmas wish list in one truly epic destination.

Christmas at the Castle is the ultimate festive experience! Glide upon our spectacular ice rink to your favourite festival hits in the shadow of a world class back drop and discover our dazzling light trail with dancing light projections.

Inside, journey through the castle at the most magical time of the year. Discover twinkling trees, dazzling decorations and festive flourishes with the Great Hall & Staterooms and marvel at the renowned 20ft high Christmas tree.  And join Santa as he settles down to tell charming tales, sharing stories of festive cheer with little ones, accompanied, of course, by his merry elves.

Outside, climb the towers and ramparts for impressive panoramic winter views and explore 64-acres of grounds and gardens. Overhead, you’ll find impressive birds of prey, flying gracefully as our expert Falconer leads them in an unforgettable demonstration.

There’s so much to enjoy for the entire family, including a host of seasonal entertainment, meeting cheery characters and eating delicious food!

Plus, BRAND NEW for 2021 welcomes the unmissable Stories with Santa experience in partnership with Orchard Toys. (additional ticket required)!

Stories with Santa
New for 2021

Stories with Santa

In partnership with Orchard Toys.

We’re delighted to announce that we’re working with Santa’s trusted team to expand our much-loved Stories with Santa – in partnership with Orchard Toys.

Santa’s mischievous elves have been hard at work creating a brand new experience in their workshop! With their help, children will be able to put together and pack their very own exclusive game from Orchard Toys. Once your game is ready to go to its new home – one of Santa’s trusty elves will award each child Santa’s seal of approval.

And that’s not all! Once you’ve finished tinkering in the workshop, head to The Library, where Santa and Mrs Claus will recall magical tales for all children to hear…

Book early to avoid disappointment!
