The Santa Experience at Wroxham Barns - Believe in the Magic of Christmas


We’re delighted to announce that Norfolk’s favourite Santa has agreed once again to take time out of his busy schedule at the North Pole to come to Junior Farm at Wroxham Barns with his Elves for his hugely popular 'Santa Experience’ and this year there’s even more fun to be had with our ALL-NEW Animal Nativity Barn where you can meet our real North Pole reindeer.

An immersive and very special ‘Santa Experience’ lasting almost 2 hours and NO QUEUES! Bringing alive the magic of Christmas for your little ones and an opportunity to spend quality time with Santa and his Elves. Children take part in Elf Academy with our mischievous North Pole Elves and at their Graduation Ceremony they’ll receive an Elf School Diploma and Elf Hat to take away and there’s plenty of singing, dancing and games in between too. There’s Christmas crafts too where the children can decorate a lovely memento to take away. Next, meet the man in red himself, find out whether you’ve been naughty or nice and receive a quality gift. The fun doesn’t stop there and BRAND NEW this year the children will collect a Magic Key from Santa himself. Hold on tight to that Magic Key and head to our exclusive undercover Animal Nativity Barn to spend time with Santa’s real reindeer and donkeys. This area is exclusive for children and families on the Santa Experience and cannot be accessed by the general public.

Grown-ups don’t feel left out as we have yummy Wroxham Barns mince pies for you – included too! And there will be lots of photo opportunities where you can take some fabulous images to keep and to share with family and friends.

Best suited for children aged 2 to 10 years although we welcome all ages.
