One of the best places to visit Father Christmas in County Durham
Father Christmas will be returning to his favourite fireside chair in the beautifully decorated Grand Entrance Hall at Raby Castle this festive season.
Join the fun as he recounts a Christmas classic with the help of the sparkly Mrs Bauble the Castle Groom, Elvis the cheeky Christmas pony and his friendly Footmen.
The Grand Entrance Hall will be adorned with twinkling Christmas trees, a roaring log ﬁre and Father Christmas will meet each child and give them a special gift to put under the Christmas tree.
Families visiting Father Christmas will be able to see him from Saturday 30th November and for the first time, he will stay right up until Christmas Eve, before heading off on his sleigh. Also new for this year will be evening sessions at 6pm where the Castle’s candlelit Grand Entrance Hall will really bring the magic of Father Christmas to life.
