Santa’s Coming to Slimbridge at Slimbridge Wetland Centre

Saturday 12 to Tuesday 22 December 2020

Editor's Choice

Explore a winter wetland paradise and tuck in to a delicious family meal with a special guest, as Santa returns to Slimbridge Wetland Centre, this December.

Create some magical memories at Slimbridge Wetland Centre this Christmas, with Santa parking his sleigh at the popular family attraction from Saturday 12 to Tuesday 22 December 2020.

Excited children will have the chance to meet Father Christmas and his elves over a hearty breakfast or festive afternoon tea in the Kingfisher Kitchen restaurant.

With plenty of Christmas gifts in his sack for well-behaved diners, Santa will make an appearance as families tuck in to their full English breakfasts or nibble on finger sandwiches and mince pies – keeping a safe distance, of course.

After meeting the man himself, ticketholders can make the most of Slimbridge’s winter wetland wonderland, spotting snowy swans, exploring the Arctic Adventure exhibit or taking in the frosty views from the Estuary Tower – with special Christmas activities to be announced, too.

Please note, tickets must be booked online in advance. Following government guidelines, tables can seat a maximum of six people including adults and children.
