Seated in his chamber, traditionally decorated with seasonal greenery, Green Father Christmas will be selecting presents from a large wooden chest to give to each child that he meets. Every child can spend time with Green Father Christmas before receiving a traditional toy wrapped in brown paper and string.

There are lots of opportunities to take photos, and each guest can enjoy a hot drink and mince pie whilst waiting to see Green Father Christmas.

“A magical visit to see Green Father Christmas today with my nine year old and his grandparents. Lovely, welcoming, friendly helpers and a fabulous Father Christmas dispelled any doubts about the magic of Christmas. My son said ‘it was really great, they put a lot of effort into everything about it, I’d like to visit again next year!’ – we will be back thank you!”
