Meet Father Christmas & his Elves

4th December 2021 - 19th December 2021

All our family meet and greets with Father Christmas are now sold out. But you can still come and greet him when he arrives in his sleigh at 11am on Saturday 4th December at Abbotsford.

Father Christmas is coming to Abbotsford for the very first time! Book your tickets to meet him and his Elves in his magical grotto throughout the month.

Come & welcome Father Christmas when he arrives on the Meadow outside our Visitor Centre at Abbotsford at 11am on Saturday 4th December.  He'll then be in his grotto from 11.30am onwards.

Date and time: timed visits are available to book every Friday, Saturday and Sunday from Saturday 4th December until Sunday 19th December.  He'll be in his grotto from 1pm on Fridays, and 10am until 3.30pm on Saturday & Sunday (except 4th December which starts at 11.30am). 


Each 10-minute slot is exclusive to a family.

Due to anticipated demand, we recommend you book your visit in advance.  We cannot guarantee there will be a time slot available for your family visit if you do not pre-book.

Price: £12 per child.  Each child receives an age appropriate gift wrapped book with a Christmas theme.

You'll find Father Christmas' grotto in our Visitor Centre.
