By popular request, come and explore the Twelve days of Christmas with a Sunnycroft twist. While Father Christmas is busy elsewhere, experience an exclusive look at how Sunnycroft is transformed for the season and creates magic for lots of children.

Meeting point

Father Christmas is at Sunnycroft (200 Holyhead Rd, Wellington, Telford TF1 2DR) about 15 / 20 minutes from Attingham and not on the Attingham main estate.

What to bring and wear

Please dress for the weather.


Sunnycroft house is a small historic house and has three steps up to each doorway to enter or exit this event. This event is regrettably unsuitable for wheelchair or buggy access. There is no handrail at the entrance to the house. Inside, your visit is all on the ground floor of the house which is level. Seating is available if required around the house.


Please arrive no more than 10 - 15 minutes before your time slot as parking at Sunnycroft is limited, and entry to the house is by time slot only. On arrival you will be greeted by our welcome team and guided to the front of the house where you will be met. The house is 150 yards from the carpark. Your visit should last around 20 - 30 minutes from arrival to leaving the Sunnycroft site. There is no catering available at Sunnycroft. We recommend making a day of it by also visiting Attingham Park: it’s a 15 - 20 min drive towards Shrewsbury. If you would like to visit the Attingham Mansion and ice rink please also book a timed entry slot for these activities.
