Father Christmas at the Fen

A traditional family visit to see Father Christmas in the Fen Cottage

  • Booking essential

Join the elves to make a decoration, and to collect a Christmas craft pack for taking home, before popping into the Fen Cottage where Father Christmas will be warming his toes by the fire. He will have a present for you too of course!

Please note, on 4th and 5th December it will be Mother Christmas who is visiting the Fen this year,, sharing the workload as the man himself is pretty busy.

Meeting point
Come to the Visitor Centre to get started with your visit.
Due to its small size, Fen Cottage is not suitable for wheelchairs or pushchairs - we will provide somewhere to park them outside. Floors are uneven so care is needed.
Mother Christmas will be standing in for Father Christmas on 4th and 5th December while he is very busy elsewhere.
