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 and when visiting with Father Christmas.


Father Christmas tickets cost £18 per child and £8 per accompanying adult/person. Please select the appropriate ticket for the number of children and accompanying people. The max. group size is six people (adults or children) due to the size of 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. If you expect to need to use the toilet facilities before entry to the house or pay for additional tickets please account for this extra time between arrival and the start of your time slot. 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 visiting Attingham, entry to the Mansion and ice rink are by pre booked timed entry tickets.
