Sat 19 - Sun 20 Dec Magical Medieval Christmas


On December 19 and 20, The Canterbury Tales will be transformed into a festive wonderland for visitors to explore as they step back in time to 14th century England.

Start your adventure at the Tabard Inn, where Santa's elf will be busily wrapping gifts in front of the roaring fire. With carol singing and jolly pilgrims along the way it's then off through the snow-filled streets of old London in search of the icicle-covered Christmas tree, which will be adorned with medieval decorations such as fruit and animals.

Here the whole family will have the chance to dress up in elf costumers for a fun photo opportunity, and youngsters will be able to write down their Christmas wish and post to Santa in the attraction's special mail box.

As you continue along the cobbled road, be sure to stop for mead tasting (adults only) before visiting Santa's grotto, where there will be a gift for every child.

At the journey's end there will be plenty of time to pick up some last-minute Christmas gifts at the attraction's medieval gift shop - from fiery green dragon puppets, naughty knight wine bottle holders and mead to quirky gothic giftware, swords and shields, there's something for everyone!
