Father Christmas in the East

Meeting Father Christmas is one of the experiences that makes the festive period so magical, so why not visit him at one of our special places across the East of England? However, you may need to book in advance - he's a very busy man you know!

Father Christmas at Hatfield Forest 

Over the festive season, the wintry weather takes its toll on the forest’s grassy paths which become worn and eroded. Even Father Christmas is helping us care for the forest by changing his usual walking trail to carols by the campfire.
