Christmas in the East of England

Child gazing at Christmas tree

Have you started counting down to Christmas? Although things will be a little bit different this year, we still have things to look forward to.

Christmas 2020

Christmas is a special time of year at our places and we look forward to welcoming visitors in line with government guidelines. Sadly our meet Father Christmas experiences, carol concerts, craft workshops and Christmas markets won't be going ahead in the East this year. While things may look a little different, families and visitors can still enjoy a range of winter trails, walks, lights and festive decorations where possible.
