Enjoy a magical December day out in the Worcestershire countryside where the castle and museum will be dressed for Christmas and Santa himself is waiting inside…

There’ll be so much to enjoy, including:

  • Book to meet Santa and receive a gift – timed slots are bookable (£8, limited spaces)
  • Follow the Nutcracker Trail – can you find all the soldiers around the castle?
  • Meet Mother Christmas!
  • Write a letter to Santa in the Victorian Schoolroom
  • Decorate a Christmas biscuit to eat
  • Make Christmas crafts to take home
  • Watch juggling and try it for yourself
  • Enjoy festive music
  • Explore the castle, museum and grounds – including the woodland play area

Hartlebury Castle’s volunteer gardeners have been busy making beautiful Christmas wreaths which you can buy to adorn your door at home.

A Family Christmas is the perfect way to get the festive season going for children – and grown-ups too!
