Christmas Experience at Blithbury Reindeer Lodge
Our award winning* Christmas experience is still having some tweaks done to make sure it is working correctly so please keep checking back to ensure you don’t miss out..!!
From the moment you arrive at Blithbury you will enter into a magical wonderland where elves sing, dance, and tell stories; where Santa knows all about you and reindeer big and small are eager for love and kisses.
To complete the magic our trained reindeer will be waiting to take you on a traditional sleigh ride down a path lined with twinkly lights and Christmas trees.
On arrival at Blithbury you’ll be given warm welcome along with a map and the opportunity to purchase some moss to feed the reindeer** – you’re then free to walk around all our barns to see and fuss these beautiful animals to your heart’s content. Our herd are inside during the winter months, allowing you to get up close to all of our reindeer, from young calves to large males.
Santa knows that children don’t like waiting around much to see him, so at Blithbury you don’t have to.
When you book your tickets you will be asked to select a time slot to attend Elf School and see Santa.
You can arrive at Blithbury anytime during our opening hours on the day of your visit, there aren’t any time restrictions. At your selected time you need to go to the Elf School waiting area, along with several other families, ready to be collected by the elves.
In Elf School you’ll learn how we train the reindeer for their Christmas Eve adventures! You can join in singing and dancing before an elf comes to collect you to see Santa. This part of the visit is just for your family, Santa’s grotto is very cosy though so unfortunately can only take a maximum of 6 people in total.
After visiting Santa, the elves will take you into the toy workshop where you can select a gift from the wrapping tables. Our head elves will also be hosting story-time by the fire and helping children each build an edible snowman; at regular intervals during the day.
No visit is complete without stopping by our Christmas shop to stock up on gifts and mementos, including our specially commissioned Blithbury reindeer cuddly toy and don’t’ forget to collect you Elf School certificate.
Visit our refreshment barn for hot chocolate with all the trimmings, a slice of cake or maybe even a mince pie……or two!
