Tickets for Christmas at Tapnell are available for day time sessions when the Farm Park is open, plus some evening sessions.

All tickets must be purchased online in advance.

Day time sessions are a combined ticket with Christmas Experience and Farm Park Admission Online. Once you have purchased this, you do not need to book your admission to the Farm Park, just show your booking confirmation as proof of entry to the Farm Park.

Farm Park admission is free with a Winter Season Pass, but Winter Season Pass holders still need to purchase tickets for the Christmas Experience online - under the Winter Season Pass ticket options.


Evening sessions are stand alone events which take place when the Farm Park is closed. There is a special entrance, signposted from the car park.

If you are coming to an evening session, you do not need to buy Farm Park admission so please book the 'Christmas Experience no Park Entry' ticket.

The Event in more detail...

The Tapnell Farm Christmas Experience starts at home with a letter* from Hollie The Husky, who is writing to children, inviting them to come and help! (And eventually, meet Santa!)

A new fantastical Christmas journey awaits children and their families this year. The 45-minute experience is led by a team of trained elves who will fully immerse you in the wonderment of Christmas. There will be storytelling and interactive puzzles to solve, plus lots of amazing scenery too.

The Tapnell Farm Christmas Experience is designed for children from 2 years to 100, as there is something for everyone. At the end of your adventure, you will meet Santa himself, he knows a lot more about you than you think, and he can’t wait to meet you all and thank you for helping! We will ask for more details at the online checkout to help Santa surprise your kids!

* The letter can be downloaded and printed at home, via a link below (also in the booking confirmation email).

Letters are not personalised, but can easily be written on and posted to children by an adult.

Here's a glimpse at last year's magical adventure...

Book with confidence this winter!

These past 3 years have been a bit strange, and we appreciate that things are still a little difficult right now. So we want our customers to book with confidence, knowing that if government guidelines change and we are unable to operate, our Christmas Experience, Event tickets and Admission* will be fully refunded! Santa said it was absolutely fine, so what are you waiting for!?

All ages love Christmas at Tapnell and whatever the weather, expect a journey like no other. The Christmas experience is entirely under cover, so the weather won’t spoil anyone’s fun! A guaranteed magical experience you won’t forget.

We are taking COVID19 measures into consideration and planning an event that is safe for both our customers and staff... we won't let that spoil the fun though!

(*Refund excludes Winter Season Passes)

Christmas in the Farm Park

This year, the park will be beautifully decorated to welcome in the festive season, including the return of our famous giant Christmas Tree (we're not sure if we will trust Smudge the Elf with that one again). The Coffee House will also be serving delicious festive treats, there will be festive music and face painting (at weekends tbc)

And to top it all off Gingerbread Decorating** returns to the Farm Park on Saturday 26th & Sunday 27th November, weekends on the lead up to Christmas, plus Wednesday 21st & Thursday 22nd December, in The Craft Cabin, - and can be enjoyed without taking part in the Christmas Experience.

Join Mrs Claus at 11:00, 11:45, 12:30, 2:00, 2:45, and 3:30 for half our sessions.

£2.50, card only

Seasonal shopping discounts for Winter Season Pass holders will be available in our Farm Park Shop (on selected dates - keep an eye on newsletters). The shop will also be stocked to the rafters with great gifting ideas for all ages.
