A Magical Meeting with Father Christmas

Book Here!

Marvel at the magic of Christmas at Hoghton Tower in our magnificent Banqueting Hall where you will find Father Christmas next to the roaring log fire waiting to chat with you in small groups. He will make sure that he knows what every child would like to find on Christmas morning. Each child will receive a gift from underneath the beautifully decorated Christmas Tree and there will be time for you to take individual or family pictures in the festive surroundings.

This is a fundraising event for the Hoghton Tower Preservation Trust and is volunteer run.

Advance online booking is recommended as availability on the day cannot be guaranteed. Your ticket is valid at any time of day. Father Christmas is a very popular man at this time of year and as such queues are expected so please remember to dress warmly. We regret we are unable to reserve time slots for visitors.

£7.50 per child.

*Please note our Christmas Craftacular will also be taking place on December 2nd and a Site Entry Fee of £2 per adult (Under 16s free) will apply to all visitors (payable on the day – cash only).
