Advent calendars and pantomimes are fantastic, but Christmas isn’t Christmas without a visit to a certain man in red.
For a truly magical experience, drop in on Santa Claus at Bodiam Castle near Robertsbridge, where you can meet Father Christmas in his atmospheric medieval grotto. All children will receive a special gift and visitors can explore the castle with the Seasonal Challenge.
The grotto is open to good boys and girls from 10.30am to 4.30pm on the weekends of December 10 and 11, 17 and 18, and until 6.30pm on Thursday December 22 and Friday December 23, when the castle will be floodlit for even more magic.
