Family Christmas at Harewood House now to 24 Dec

Join us for a festive family experience in the home of Father & Mrs Christmas, and be warmed by all its sweet magic, making the merriest of memories to treasure. This is a magical family encounter with Father Christmas, accompanied this year by Mrs Christmas and Candy the elf, to add extra seasonal sparkle.

Your journey begins with a cheery visit to Father Christmas’ cottage, where you’ll be met with a very warm welcome from Mrs Christmas, followed by an encounter filled with interactive stories and songs, a photo opportunity with Father Christmas and a personalised traditional gift for every child. All bookings for Father Christmas can be done via our online Box Office at

Your Christmas experience doesn’t stop there – there’s lots more fun to be had! Explore the magical, mischievous installations in the main House, both on the State Floor and Below Stairs, and discover how the House and its contents come alive after dark. If you have booked an experience for after 4pm, make sure you allow time to visit the House and Grounds before you visit Father Christmas. To book go to
