There's no denying that this year has been a challenging one, and we could all use a little festive cheer! Make this Christmas magical with a family visit to see Santa, who is flying in to Harpin's at Ackworth Garden Centre this Christmas.

To keep excited children entertained, the visit starts with a reindeer hunt around our store, inside and out, and children receive a chocolate lolly once they have found them all! Afterwards, visitors make their way through the winter wonderland grotto, and will be able to take pictures on Santa's sleigh and get family photographs along the winter wonderland walk. Children will then have their own private family audience with Santa Claus, where he'll make a note of all their Christmas wishes, as long as they promise that they've been very good this year! With the help of Santa's elves, visitors will also receive a polaroid photo memento of their visit, and children can choose a brilliant, well-deserved gift from a wide range of toys, including the award-winning gifts in a tin.

Tickets can be purchased online. To establish social distancing, the number of places available has had to be reduced this year and so pre-booking is encouraged in order to avoid disappointment as few tickets will be available on the door. Please note that all tickets are non-refundable.
