Step back in time to 14th century England. Travel through the medieval streets of London, full of twinkling lights and festive cheer. You will see all sorts of magical festive things on your journey...

... Meet Santa's excitable elf as he wraps up all the children's gifts!
... Follow the Christmas Stocking Trail and spot them all.
... Meet jolly pilgrims singing carols in support of Pilgrims Hospice and sing along as merrily as you can.
... Have a go at a giant spot the difference.
... Meet Santa in his cosy grotto, write him a Christmas wish and receive a special gift from the man himself
... Learn the ingredients needed to make mince pie.

As you wind your along the cobbled road, be sure to stop for mead tasting (adults only!) and our photo opportunity - a chance for the whole family to dress up and create a lasting memory of your festive moment.

Pick up some last-minute Christmas gifts at our medieval gift shop - from dragon puppets and naughty knights to heraldry gifts and mead, there's something for everyone!
