Winter Wonderland at Westport House is a magical family experience brimming with Christmas cheer that will leave the kids starry-eyed and the whole family believing in fairy-tales!

Winter Wonderland at Westport House is a magical family experience brimming with Christmas cheer that will leave the kids starry-eyed and the whole family believing in fairy-tales! Escape the wintery weather outside for the warmth of open fires in this stunning historic house. Soak up the twinkling lights, lush green garlands and tinsel trimmings spilling festively from every corner of Westport House as the little ones enjoy a fun-filled Christmas experience that they are sure to remember forever.

Upon arrival, you will make your way inside, into the front hall of Westport House and be greeted by Santa’s Little Helper who will lead your family – along with a small group of other families – through the guided experience.

You will start the journey with story-time by the fireplace of the gorgeous Drawing Room with a very warm welcome from Mrs Claus who will tell you some magical Christmas Stories. Afterward, children will be wowed with a very special visit to Santa in his magical grotto where he’ll have a chat with all the children, Please note that the group size will include no more that 12-15 children.

Following all that excitement, you will be in need of a refreshment! Pop into the Old Kitchen Cafe for a free juice for the kids and a delicious festive drink for the adults where you can also enjoy homemade sweet and savoury delights. Next, its time to go visit Tinsel Town (New for 2019!) where you will see the elves busy in their workshop. Use the North Pole Express post Office to write and send your letter to Santa.

To truly emphasise the real spirit of Christmas, be sure to make a wish at the Christmas Wishing Tree, where children can write down their wishes and hang them on a branch of their choosing.

With so much to do at the Winter Wonderland, you’ll cherish the special memories your family will share of this fun-filled and blissful Christmas-time experience.

“Mrs Claus was outstanding – this whole experiencing was enchanting. The real fire, the story is told so well, the engagement with the children, the delivery of the spirit of Christmas was wonderful to hear.”
