We took our grandchildren to a Santa Claus event. it was enchanting, relaxed, queue free with friendly and welcoming staff. Everyone enjoyed themselves. The village was even more brilliant lit up at night than daytime. DO GO THERE!!

Nice family day out - wholesome fun with no riff raff about! A pleasant experience with no rush or clutter and a very relaxing experience even with boisterous young family. Some of the models are very dainty and lifelike - certainly recommend!

There are picnic tables on a small grassed area and a cafe. There is room to keep your buggy with you around the village. There is also a good play area.
