Guess who is coming to town this holiday season!

Father Christmas has filled his sleigh with presents, fed all the reindeer, made a list and checked it twice. He will land at West Horsley Place on selected Saturdays, Sundays and Mondays in December. Come along with all your family to meet him. 

Your festive experience will of course include meeting the big man himself, but so much more besides! The house will be decked out with festive decorations and there will be lots to see and do before and after your visit with Father Christmas.

As part of your experience, you’ll find:


Children can sit around the fireplace in the library with their favourite book, of play with the mini-soft play items in this space. 


In the Morning Room enjoy Christmas crafts. 

Write your letter to Father Christmas, make a decoration and lots more make-and-takes.

The elves have been busy wrapping presents in the Stone Hall. They’ve also left some of their clothes out for you to dress up.


Decorate your own festive biscuits and indulge with a hot chocolate. 


While you enjoy all the family activities in the most Christmassy of settings, Father Christmas’ elves will collect you and take you into Santa’s study to meet the man himself. Father Christmas will have time to spend with every family and each child will receive a present 

You had better watch out, this is the place to meet Father Christmas this December.

When booking for Father Christmas you will be asked to select a 30 min time slot. Within this time slot you will be taken into the study to meet him. Please note that it would be best to arrive at West Horsley Place at least 15 mins before your time slot but please do make sure to leave enough time either before or after your time slot to take advantage of all the crafts and activities on offer. It is a short walk from the free car park to the Manor House. There will be crafts, biscuit making and storytelling and we estimate that you can spend 1 hour to 1.5 hours with us. While you are waiting to see Santa you can take advantage of all the other family festive activities in the manor house.
