Storytelling with Santa

Take your little ones on a trail through our gardens to meet Santa in the mansion house.

  • Booking essential

Join Santa at Castle Ward to make magical Christmas memories in the new setting of the Main Hall in the Georgian mansion house.

Follow the trail through the illuminated gardens to meet Mrs Claus at the big house, and settle in to listen to a story from Santa before he checks if he has a special early Christmas present before the big day.

To ensure your experience is as magical as possible, we will be contacting you to take additional details.
