Belton’s winter grotto

The elves have been busy creating a comfortable winter grotto for families to visit Father Christmas at Belton. No visit, of course, is complete without first saying hello to Mother Christmas first, where she’ll help children decorate their own Christmas cookie.

All good boys and girls will also receive an early present from Father Christmas.

Breakfast with Father Christmas

Father Christmas loves his food, especially a hearty breakfast. So as Christmas Eve gets closer, and it’s time for him to start loading his sleigh, join Father Christmas for breakfast, at Belton’s Ride Play Café!

Enjoy a yummy breakfast and receive an early present from Father Christmas. 

Supper with Father Christmas

Come and share a festive evening meal with Father Christmas this December. It may almost be time to get ready for Christmas Eve, but he’s put aside some time to pop to Belton for a special bite to eat.

As well as supper, Father Christmas will have a gift for all good boys and girls too.
