Father Christmas in Residence

About

You are invited to visit Father Christmas in Residence at Holkham Hall.

During this magical event, you will meet Father and Mother Christmas who will regale you with tales of wonder and magic, they will fill you with festive cheer and good humour and fill your children’s hearts with wonder! Your visit will be set amidst the opportunity to wander the State rooms, magically decorated for Christmas; children can enjoy a festive treasure hunt and our expert room stewards will share their knowledge about the Hall and the magnificent Christmas decorations. Younger visitors will delight in receiving a small present to take home and pop under the tree. Plus, before visiting the Hall, everyone can enjoy a drink and biscuit (children) and glass of Prosecco or soft drink and tasty mince pie (accompanying adults). Yum!
