It is with great pleasure we announce that Father Christmas will be bringing the magic of Christmas back to Bolton Abbey this winter!

Step into his twinkling Christmas Village, tucked away in the middle of Strid Wood and see what enchanting experience awaits. Become acquainted with the cheeky elves who have just arrived from the North Pole, and let them take you on a special journey to meet the Great Man himself.

A number of relaxed visits are available to meet Father Christmas & the elves. For more information & to book click here.

What’s included?

Children will join the elves in two festive craft activities. Parents of babies are welcome to complete these activities on behalf of their baby to ensure they can take the same personalised memento home.
Following the craft activities, children will enjoy a musical activity with the elves.
After completing all the activities, children will help the elves to find Father Christmas and make sure he is on time for all of his deliveries. Each child will receive a present from Father Christmas (if they are on the good list!).
There will be an opportunity at the end of the experience to purchase hot drinks and snacks. Due to the remote location, it is cash only.
