Hestercombe Gardens Father Christmas experience
 Visit Hestercombe this Christmas to enjoy a magical Father Christmas experience, where every child can meet the man himself and receive their own special gift.
 
When you arrive, you’ll be greeted by one of our friendly Hestercombe elves, who’ll hand you a special activity pack full of festive fun.
 
When Father Christmas is ready, you’ll wander through the winter gardens to the man himself. In his sweet little garden folly, the log fire will be roaring, lights will be twinkling on the Christmas tree and sacks of presents will be waiting…
 
A visit is extra magical in the evenings, as you can wander along the illuminated pathway to his garden hideout and enjoy our special Christmas illuminations around Rook Wood and the Victorian Shrubbery.
 
After seeing Father Christmas, children can enjoy taking part in our Christmas gardens trails, followed by a visit to the Stables Restaurant or Caffé + Gelato for festive hot chocolate and other winter treats.

Pricing

Due to the Christmas Illuminations taking place this year, Father Christmas tickets have different prices for day time visits (pre-4pm) and evening visits (after 4pm). This is because the Illuminations experience will be an integral part of the Father Christmas event after dark ~ so you will be able to enjoy the lights as part of your visit. There is no option to visit Father Christmas in the evenings without this small additional charge.
 
If you purchase an evening ticket for Father Christmas, you will not need to purchase an ILLUMINATE ticket, as this is included.
 
Daytime prices (before 4pm)
Children £11
Adults (non-members) half price gardens entry £6.90
Adults (members) £free
 
Evening prices (after 4pm)
Children £13
Adults (non-members) £3 + half price gardens entry £6.90
Adults (members) £3
 
If you book a slot after 3pm, you will be given a complimentary return gardens admission voucher to be used at a future date of your choosing, to allow you to explore the gardens during daylight hours and take part in our Christmas trails.
 
Tickets are available on the Hestercombe website.
