Summer Activities for Children: Meet the Babies Weekend!

Looking for things to do with the kids this summer? In need of some fun weekend activities? Then look no further! Blithbury Reindeer Lodge is pleased to announce Meet the Babies 2018! On the weekend of the 23rd-24th June, you will have the opportunity to come and meet the lodge’s newest residents, our adorable new babies!


Meet the Babies Weekend at Blithbury Reindeer Lodge


Our Meet the Babies event is held at this time every year, to celebrate the safe arrival of our new calves. This year we welcomed 22 new adorable little residents to the lodge and we just can’t wait for you to meet them! Some of them will be as little as a month old! Baby reindeer are incredibly cute and a joy to be around, so we just love sharing this joy with members of the public.


Our Meet the Babies weekend is the perfect opportunity to experience the wonders of Blithbury Reindeer Lodge and explore the 30 acres of land across which our reindeer are free to roam. You can enjoy a stroll around the open tracks connecting our fields to meet and fuss the reindeer. This allows you to observe the reindeer in their natural habitat, sleeping, playing and grazing. If you are careful and quiet enough, they might even come and say hello!


Gates will be open from 10am – 4pm, with last admission at 3pm. The scheduled activities will take place twice per day; once in the morning and once in the afternoon. Wondering just what great activities we’ll be offering this year? Well, wonder no more…


10:30am/12:30pm – Reindeer Talk


At our reindeer talk, you can learn about how we deliver and care for the lodge’s calves, plus the tradition of reindeer racing!


11:00am/1:00pm – Reindeer Races


Weather permitting, you will then get to witness the tradition of reindeer racing on our very own sleigh track!


11:30am/1:30pm – Reindeer Meet and Greet


This is your chance to meet some of Blithbury’s exquisite reindeer herd. Say hello, pet their noses and take a few photos. Our experience reindeer handlers will also be on hand to answer any reindeer-related questions that you may have.


That’s not all. In additional to these amazing scheduled events, there will be even more fun activities on offer, such as the racing “ride along” barn and even donkey rides! AND there’ll be one last event exclusive… access to our brand new soft play barn!


To mark the opening of the lodge’s brand new soft play barn, we are including within your ticket price FREE access to our soft play area!
