Experience the magic of Christmas at Marks Hall Estate. Step into our festive garden and help Father Christmas find his reindeer in time for the big day - a tasty gingerbread treat will be your reward! Make a Christmas decoration of your very own in our pop-up workshop, then it’s time to meet the man himself… Enter the Coach House, decorated with twinkly lights and colourful trees, and get comfy as Father Christmas reads you and your new friends a yuletide tale, straight from the North Pole. A special gift awaits, just for you.


Sessions run throughout the day, 10am – 4pm. On arrival, please park at the Visitor Centre car park where you'll be directed by our festive elves to the Coach House.
