      Billed as the oldest tourist attraction in England this is definitely one eerie, spooky but also magical place. And it is this magical element that is the focus of this piece.
      This is the first time they are opening their doors in the run-up to Christmas and staging a magical Christmas experience for all the family, especially children, as you’d expect.
      You are able to visit Santa, look around his toyshop and even get a free gift from him. Can’t be bad – well obviously not lol!
      You can then post a letter to the North Pole, for once he gets back, so he can see all the things you want; this includes adults too hahaha!! Providing you have been good of course.
      There is also a wishing tree where you can hang up your wishes to make sure you definitely get what you want for Christmas.
      Then you can put your artistic skills to the test by decorating a special treat. This could be messy but no doubt lots of fun.
      And once you have done all this hard, but very worthwhile, work you can sit back and listen to some story-telling and then be whisked off on a ride in Santa’s Sleigh and have your picture taken as a memento as of this magical journey.
      There will be plenty to see and do besides what I have described above as well enjoy the magical atmosphere of this historic and beautiful part of our local landscape.
      This is a truly magical experience so it is recommended to buy your tickets early, so not miss out, by clicking on this link to purchase online because that is the only way you can do it:

      Have a great magical time!
