Christmas at Hobbledown


Christmas is coming, and this year will be special! Come and join in on some festive fun at Hobbledown...

The Hobbledown Light Trail

In 2021, for the first time ever, we're opening our doors at night for a festive winter light trail!

Opening at 4:30 most days between 3rd December - 3rd January, you'll get a chance to explore the secret world of the Hobblers after dark! See the likes of Fairy Fern and Rumpletump among the magical lights and lanterns making up the illuminated trail leading around the park... and all while enjoying a festive hot chocolate or mince pie!

And find out What Happens at Hobbledown After Dark...

Santa's Letters

With our connections to the North Pole, we've been able to arrange a postal service direct from the sorting office in Santa's workshop! If you would like to recieve a letter from Santa, you can use the form available from the Indoor Playbarn. Post it in our Christmas mailbox, and as long as we recieve your letter before the last posting date for Christmas (Monday 20th December), we will make sure Santa replies... 


Meet Roo & Tod, our new reindeer

Joining in the celebrations this year will be our brand new resident reindeer: Roo and Tod! You can meet them at the animal barn near the Thinkery and ask them what it's like working for Father Christmas at this very busy time of year.


And, if you're stuck for present ideas...

We've got some cracking presents that won't get held up in traffic or delayed on a lorry - a range of gift vouchers that will give anyone something to look forward to in 2022.
