Meet Father Christmas and his elves
- Selected dates between 24 November and 24 December 2018
Every year Father Christmas and his elves set up camp here at the Eden Project, from late November right up until Christmas Eve.
This activity is part of:
Our Father Christmas experience
There are letters to sort, presents to deliver, and a very important sleigh to prepare. Father Christmas is keen to meet you and your children, so they can help.
Inside the cosy tent you’ll get to see ‘behind the scenes’, including the elves’ bunkbeds, the pigeonholes full of children’s letters, and all the stockings laid out ready for the big day.
After settling down for a story beside an open fire, each child can enjoy a special moment with the man in red.
'We go every year – it’s so magical and is the start of Christmas celebrations for us.'
'So much more than a visit to Santa... beautifully done.'
