Visiting Father Christmas is a tradition for many families and firmly marks the start of the festive season. This year, Father Christmas will once again be stopping his sleigh in Colchester and heading to the Castle’s magical grotto to meet local children. 

Together with his Castle helpers he is looking forward to spreading plenty of Christmas cheer and handing out some rather special presents to those that come to see him.  

A visit to meet Father Christmas is suitable for all ages and includes a gift.
