There'll be sparkle and wonder guaranteed when Santa visits Scotney Castle this December.
Santa has set up Santa HQ in the old castle this year and, although he and the elves are really busy getting ready for Christmas, he'll be sharing one of his favourite stories in a few special bookable small group gatherings.
Snuggle down for a cosy Christmas story before chatting to the big man himself. Get an early Christmas present while accompanying adults can snap a photo by the decorated Christmas tree to celebrate the event. After meeting Santa, one of the elves will take you off to the tea-room for a delicious hot chocolate and gingerbread.
Please note we can only accommodate a maximum of two adults per family. Bulky items such as rucksacks or pushchairs must be left outside. This experience will last around 30 minutes from arrival at the old castle.
