EXCITEMENT is building at Thorp Perrow Arboretum, near Bedale, with Santa due to arrive on Saturday 25th November!

Santa, Mrs Claus and their elf helpers will be welcoming their first visitors of the season to the Grotto after a gloriously seasonal woodland walk through the Arboretum.

Visitors will be treated to an adventure through miniature forest fairy worlds and frozen tundra before meeting Santa and – if they’ve been good – receiving a little gift.

Natasha Ropner, who lives at Thorp Perrow with Sir Henry and their children, said: ‘We’re all really excited that Santa has chosen Thorp Perrow again this year for his magical grotto and we’re very much looking forward to welcoming visitors soon.’

Season Ticket Holders will be given special access on 16th September and all other visitors can book from 30th September.

Santa will be at Thorp Perrow between 24th November and 24th December 2023. Tickets can be booked online at
