Meet Santa and see some reindeer in our zoo

Ho, ho, ho! This is a magical time of year to visit Folly Farm.

Not only do we have the main man himself but you can also see some reindeer in our zoo. And the Folly Farm elves are on hand to bring that extra little bit of sparkle to your grotto experience. He’s brought gifts for the little ones. Plus there’s mulled wine and a mince pie for the adults which always helps spread the Christmas cheer.

New for 2019

This year we’re excited to bring you our new snow globe. Little ones will love having their photo taken with our cheeky snowman and our very own Snow Princess!

We’ve also added a Gingerbread Trail around Folly Farm and prize card hunts, we’ve given our side stalls in the fairground some Christmas cheer and our panto characters will be out and about at 11am, 12pm, 1pm, 2pm and 3pm.

Santa’s in his grotto

Additional charges

Although there’s an additional charge of £8.50 per child to visit Santa in his grotto, you don’t need to book a time to see him. Ho ho oh no, just turn up on the day, join the queue and receive your gift. Due to the location of the grotto only cash is accepted. Our snow globe is open from 11am until 3pm and there’s an additional cash only charge of £4 per family to enter the globe (maximum of four people allowed).

Don’t forget…

Jugglestruck, our resident magician, will be performing his Christmas Show at 1pm.

Santa’s reindeer can be found in our zoo at our new Asian Adventure habitat. And to complete your Winter wonderland experience we’ve got penguins and our magical indoor vintage fairground rides.

No Christmas is complete without a visit to our reindeer!
