Mr & Mrs Claus will both return to Yorkshire for festive fun at Lotherton

Updated: Oct 18, 2022

Tickets now on sale for Lotherton Hall’s Christmas Experience, 26 Nov - 31 Dec 2022

After sell-out success in 2021, popular Yorkshire family attraction, Lotherton, has announced tickets are now on sale for this year’s Christmas Experience, where Santa and his wife, Mrs Claus, will take centre stage together once again!

The most wonderful time of the year will light up at Lotherton from Saturday 26 November to Saturday 31 December 2022, when The Christmas Experience returns for its seventh enchanting year, with even more festive fun for all the family.

Getting set to once again be the best Santa experience in Yorkshire, Mr & Mrs Claus are dusting off their suits and boots while the elves are preparing the festive fairydust and Christmas crafts.

And this year promises more magic than ever before with returning favourites and new additions.

For the first time ever, visitors are invited to travel back in time to Christmas past in the Hall. They will follow in the footsteps of the Gascoigne family and their staff, Lotherton’s residents in the 1800’s, to get a glimpse into how this revered household celebrated the festivities in Edwardian times.

While her husband hosts his annual ‘Under The Wishing Tree’ extravaganza, seasonal sensation, Mrs Claus, will take up residence in the hallowed hall’s kitchens for dashings of festive fun decorating freshly baked gingerbread, all liberally sprinkled with Christmas cheer.

Venturing outside, revellers young and old can quite literally step into Christmas on the mesmerising woodland walk around the estate’s stunning grounds. Families will celebrate traditions old and new; pulling a giant cracker, finding the sixpence in a Christmas pudding, and stopping for a photo in a giant Christmas card! Tread carefully and they may even hear the fairies giggling and whispering in the enchanted festive Fairy Dell.

On their way to visit Santa, little visitors will be invited to collect their very own reindeer food from the Elf Village to take home and sprinkle on Christmas Eve.

And no Christmas Experience at Lotherton would be complete without some mischief at the North Pole, where the Elves wait with Christmas crafts including pottery painting and Christmas Eve plate decorating.

The Christmas Experience opens on 26 November 2022 and is run by Lotherton and Breeze. There are a number of visit options available, including the chance for pre-school children to visit Santa in his cabin.

Tickets are available now from just £4.55, children aged 4 and under go free! Early booking is essential as spaces are limited and strictly on a pre-booking only, time-slotted system.

Fly faster than Rudolph to to find out more and book a magical trip Christmas season.
