If there’s one Father Christmas experience near York that’s bound to sell out, it’s the chance to meet him at Castle Howard. That’s why we’re reminding you that if you want to see him, you need to be quick. There are two options for meeting the man himself:
Daytime Audiences with Father Christmas
Gather around the fire as wizard WonderPhil entertains with magic and then join in with Father Christmas as he tells stories and sings songs before handing out personalised presents.
Enchanted Evenings with Father Christmas
Gather in the Grecian Hall for a festive tea party before setting off on a candle lit trail into the house to discover Father Christmas and his bundle of presents.
Sessions are available from 25 November until 23 December (visit the website for exact times and dates) and if you want to book one of them, be quick! Accompanying adults who aren’t Castle Howard friends or annual pass holders will need to buy admission tickets.
