🎅Father Christmas will be bringing the magic back to Stockeld Park this winter!

What could make Christmas more magical than meeting Father Christmas himself? Enter Santa’s Grotto, make lasting memories that will be cherished by young and old, and enjoy the magic of one of the best and most authentic Santa’s Meet & Greet events in North Yorkshire.

At Stockeld Park, we always like to make Santa feel at home and so, as always, we have prepared him a beautiful, cosy log cabin ready for his arrival all the way from Lapland!

Get your family together, throw yourselves into the spirit of Christmas and come and meet Santa in his spacious Grotto!

One of the Most Magical Santa Experiences in Yorkshire

Stockeld Park really is the true home of Christmas: make sure you don’t miss out on all the festive fun! Every Christmas, we have prepared several activities and events for families and children of all ages, to help you plan your perfect Christmas day out in Yorkshire.

We’re very lucky to have the man who makes Christmas visit every year and Father Christmas is back for 2023! Our Santa’s Grotto is the most wonderful Christmas experience for both adults and children. With twinkling lights and Santa in a rustic wooden cabin, the whole family will feel the festive cheer here!

“Great experience the little ones had a wonderful time seeing Santa at the grotto. They enjoyed their presents and ringing the bells. Lovely place. It was very organised not too busy and not waiting too long. Will definitely be returning!”
