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!

If you climb the winding staircase up to the Long Gallery at Blickling this December, you'll be lucky enough to find Father Christmas and his elves waiting for you. Enjoy a chat with the man in red, Christmas storytelling and festive entertainment. Look out for his reindeer too.
