Meet Father Christmas in his snowy Woodland Grotto in this Grade I listed house.

Children will start their day by writing and decorating their Christmas wish list, with help from Father Christmas’s elves. They can take their letter to show Father Christmas, or post it in our Christmas post box to send it straight to the North Pole.

Father Christmas is waiting to meet all his little helpers in a stunning woodland grotto, complete with a snowy path, Christmas tunes and a festive fireplace.

Your visit to meet Father Christmas will include a stocking full of gifts and a private meeting with the man himself.

On Sunday 9 December you and all the family can also enjoy a Christmas Makers Market. We will be inviting a range of stalls to Eastbury so come and browse for your Christmas presents.
On Sunday 2 December also join us for more festive activities including Christmas crafts, children’s trails and tours of the house.

The Eastbury Kitchen will be cooking up festive surprises on both days.

Admission to Eastbury, and entry to the Christmas Makers Market, is free of charge on both days. Book tickets to visit Father Christmas at an additional charge. Please specify the ages of children visiting to receive a personalised gift.

Spaces are limited so we recommend booking in advance. Check Eastbury Manor House social media to see if on the door tickets will be available.
