Yesterday we were really excited to go to Drusillas Park in Alfriston, East Sussex and meet Father Christmas.
Chloe is 7 and Katie is 4, So completely into the magic of Christmas, Jake at 18 months is a little too young to understand but enjoys the lights and excitement.
As we walked into the most Christmassy part of the park we walked through some pretty blue lights overhead, my photo doesn’t do it justice.
All of the Father Christmas slots are scheduled so no queuing which was fantastic!
Whilst we waited we visited the Husky’s and were able to stroke them, this was a really cool experience for us and the children.
Then we went to meet Father Christmas! We were greeted by Mrs Claus and the Elves! Who were super friendly and helpful. The children were given a carrot to pass to Father Christmas for his reindeer.
As we walked in to Father Christmas Grotto it was lovely and warm and Father Christmas was asleep and then told the girls all about his reindeer, they really felt at ease and told him what they would like for Christmas. ( they often go quiet ) he was so friendly and then gave all three a lovely gift each. I won’t show it as will leave it as a surprise.
Then we left the grotto and there was a photo opportunity on a sleigh! ( To take yourself )
Next we moved onto enjoying some rides together, the girls and Jake especially loved the rainforest carousel
And of course we then went on the Hello Kitty rides, the car ride is always a winner with our three.
We then took a walk around the Zoo! The children loved seeing all of the creatures.
Here’s just a few!
If you are visiting soon, you are in for a treat.
So Christmas is now at Drusillas Park, an additional fee is paid on top of entry to see Father Christmas. He is there until the 23rd December 2019. Tickets can be booked at www.Drusillas.co.uk or as a gift idea how about buying a membership gift voucher or a Drusillas Close encounter experience!
I just wanted to add as well that next year Drusillas Park are announcing a new Jurassic Attraction in 2020 with several animatronic and model dinosaurs who will move into the park!
We were kindly gifted entry in exchange for a social media review.
