Father Christmas visits The Lost Gardens of Heligan

Posted in Events by Lauren Webb on 24th November 2021

The Heligan team are welcoming back Father Christmas and his team of Elves to The Lost Gardens.

The Lost Gardens provide the most magical and perfect setting for a Christmas experience, especially for the annual visit to meet Father Christmas. As you explore The Gardens on your way to your visit, don’t forget to stop in The Melon Yard to write your letter to Father Christmas…. he really does enjoy reading your thoughtful letters!

You and your family will then be welcomed to the exclusive Festive Reserve Yard within The Gardens, where you will start to prepare for your special visit. Here the Team will ensure you get into the Christmas spirit, with music, Christmas crackers, and festive crafts, and don’t forget your complimentary toasted marshmallows to toast over the warming fire. As anticipation builds you will be escorted by The Head elf to meet Father Christmas in the magical cosy setting of the Head Gardeners Office.

Each child will be gifted a small traditional children’s present to remember their visit to Father Christmas by, along with Christmas magic and traditional that reconnects you to the heart and true meaning of Christmas.
