Christmas Shopping Fair

Our very popular Christmas Fair offers free entry to crafts, gifts, decorations, fine foods and drink, something for everyone! Over 160 stalls are sprawled across the Stables Visitor Centre, Grand Pavilion, outdoor areas and within Hylands House, whilst entertainment is provided throughout the day.


See the House and Stables lit up after dusk and take in the festive atmosphere with a hot toddy.


Santa's Grotto

Drop-in sessions are available 11am - 6pm during the Christmas Fair

With plenty of festive cheer and fun for all the family, come along and see Santa in his Christmas fun show and Grotto.

Grab a handful of magical elf dust with Timbo, Santa’s head elf from Santa’s workshop. As he
tells you the story of ‘’The Night Before Christmas’‘ he will also train your children how to be an elf to help Santa, along with Christmas balloon modelling, lots of Christmas fun and prizes!


Your ticket price will include entertainment and a lovely Christmas gift from Santa to take home, suitable for all ages including under-3s. Also available is an opportunity to purchase a photo of your child with Santa, a great little keepsake or lovely gift for Christmas.

The whole experience can take up to 45 minutes.
