3/15  Meet Santa at the National Trust

Catch Santa at some of the beautiful historic locations of The National Trust this December where he’ll be setting up his grotto at scores of locations including Dyrham Hall, Gloucestershire, where you can also take part in the deer trail to find Rudolph and his friends in the park, and Trerice in Cornwall where a Tudor Father Christmas will be telling tales of Christmas past and kiddies can go home with a very special paper package tied up with string.

Uppark House and Garden, in West Sussex will help you find out how Victorian servants are decorating rooms and preparing for the family’s Christmas ‘upstairs’, whilst outside, the stables have been transformed into a wooded wonderland, where Father Christmas will be waiting to give out a little festive treat. And in Cotehele, Cornwall, both Father and Mother Christmas will be on duty to hear what your little one’s Christmas wishes are.
