Sincura recommends the following places to visit this Christmas with your children:
1. London Zoo
London Zoo is pulling out all the stops this year with a Christmassy after-dark experience that takes place once all the animals have been safely tucked up in bed. This is when the zoo’s mile-long pathway bursts into illuminated life, glittering with tunnels of light, huge fairy-light-spangled models of wild animals, glowing fountains and singing trees. You’ll see Father Christmas and his trusty elves along the way, can have a ride on a vintage carousel, and feast on roasted chestnuts and other seasonal staples.
London Zoo; 22 Nov-1 Jan; adult/child/family of 4 £16.50/10.50/52.00
2. Eden Project, Cornwall
The Eden Project goes all out for Christmas, with shimmering trees and an ice rink, while their Santa experience is thoughtfully creative and imaginative: children get to help out behind the scenes and see the beautifully decorated interiors that are home to the elves. They’ll see the heaps of letters from children divided into pigeonholes and the woolly stockings hung up ready for the big day, and finally meet the man himself, who’ll read them a Christmas story by the fireside.
Eden Project; 24 November-24 December; Eden Project admission adult/child £27.50/14, santa visit child & 1 adult £8-10
3. Sutton House, London
At the National Trust’s 500-year-old Sutton House, visitors will learn about a rumbustious Tudor Christmas that features a pig sewn onto to a turkey (no, really). They’ll explore the more modest Georgian celebrations, see the lavish Victorian version that gave us crackers, cards and decorated trees, and get to play with classic toys and admire the tinsel of an Eighties Christmas. Father Christmas will be ensconced next to a cosy fire in a oak-panelled Tudor grotto, and there’ll be gifts for the little ones.
Sutton House; 24 November to 23 December, Father Christmas weekends only; £9.50/5.50 adult/child
4. Saltram, Plymouth, Devon
The pale Christmas-cake-architecture of the Georgian mansion of Saltram is surrounded by tranquil gardens, that this season will be illuminated with a colourful rainbow of lights. You can turn a frosty evening into a sparkling one, exploring its trails that are punctuated by familiar fairy-tale characters. From December, visitors can also settle down to meet with Father Christmas in the stables where he’ll read seasonal stories, sing some festive songs, and give out presents to younger visitors.
Saltram; Illuminations 22 November-30 December, free; Father Christmas 1-23 December; Adult/child £4/8 (child ticket includes keepsake)
5. National Coal Mining Museum for England, Yorkshire
It’s not often you have the chance to meet Father Christmas 140m underground. Don your yellow hard hat and headlamp and descend into the exciting depths of the National Coal Mining Museum for England, where you’ll learn about Victorian miners, pit ponies, and get to meet a real miner. Book in to see Santa and all mini-miners will receive a gift. This is not the end of the mine’s festivities, there’s a brass band event and Dick Whittington pocket panto as well.
National Mining Museum; 24 November-23 December; Adult/child £5/7.50 (includes gift and certificate)
6. Kinver Edge, Staffordshire
The National Trust area of Kinver Edge is an extraordinary place, a heathland and forested escarpment where a copper and gold-streaked rockface has tiny houses carved directly into its base – they look like they were intended for elves whatever the season. To reach the houses, you walk across the frosty wild heathland, where you’ll discover the houses lit by candlelight and mulled wine warming on an open fire, as well as a very special guest: Father Christmas himself, who will be doling out gifts alongside a good dollop of cheer.
Kinver Edge; 1, 2, 8 & 9 December; £3 per child, no booking necessary
7. Santa’s Trains: various locations
Classic immersive story the Train to Christmas Town on the Dartmoor & Bodmin Railway warms the cockles, and features elves serving cocoa and the essential white-bearded character (read the full review here).
The Ffestiniog & Welsh Borders Railway have Santa specials throughout December, where Santa and his Elves pass through the carriages distributing gifts, and grownups get a mince pie and a glass of sherry. Santa by Steam in South Devon offers more mince pies, children’s entertainers, and a chance to visit Santa in his grotto and receive a gift.
Train to Christmas Town; £27.50/20.90, Ffestiniog & Welsh Borders prices tbc, Santa by steam Adult/child £20/12
8. Black Country Museum, Dudley
Join the excited search for Santa through the fascinating Black Country Museum, with festive costumed guides to help along the way. The kids will solve clues to find out the route, sprinkle ‘magic dust’ on reindeer shoes and get a chance to send a letter up the chimney to Santa’s workshop. When you find Father Christmas, he’ll have received and read all the children’s letters, and be ready with a surprise gift.
Black Country Museum Santa Hunt weekends 24 November- 24 December
9. Kents Cavern, Torquay
The Unesco-listed geocave Kents Cavern proffers not only an underground grotto, but a promenade, panto-style performance around the amazing natural architecture of the caves, where you’ll encounter lots of Christmassy characters to get you in the mood for your visit to Father Christmas. Children aged 2-12 will get a Christmas gift, while older visitors will have to settle for mince pies and mulled wine. There’s a carols concert in the caves on the 13th December if you fancy getting even more in the mood.
Kents Cavern; Adult/child £10/13; 2-24 December
10. Clent Hills, Worcestershire
National Trust-protected Clent Hills is a countryside haven of rolling hills and woodland, and offers a welcome rural escape that takes a particularly magical take on the grotto. Visitors will explore the hills, following a Christmassy treasure-hunt-like trail, before wending their way through the trees. In a cosy forest den, they’ll discover the cheerful rotund one dressed in woodland green and keeping warm by a campfire surrounded by plenty of fairylights.
Clent Hills; 9 & 16 December; child £5
