What’s on in November 

It feels like everyone has got into the Christmas spirit extra early this year and we are embracing it! Visit us during November and December and feel the festive cheer all around. Here is what else you can expect to find going on:

The decorations are in the shops, the first draft of the Christmas lists have been written and we’re all wondering how much food we need to get through to fit the turkey in the freezer – like it or not, Christmas is coming!

Begin your experience by wandering through the Pinocchio Christmas Trail and journey through the land of toys. In front of the Castle, ride the gallopers then head to the big wheel (new for 2021) and have a go at hook a duck.

Appreciate relaxed Christmas shopping in the Gift Shops and sample delicious festive food in the restaurants and kiosks.

In the Castle you will be met with beautiful traditionally decorated rooms, welcoming log fires and twinkling Christmas trees.

Admission is at 15 minute intervals and pre-booking is essential.
