Christmas at Murton Park

Prepare to be enchanted at Murton Park with our not-to-be-missed Christmas experience. Santa will take up residence in his village in the picturesque Long House which is oh-so Christmassy! He’ll want to find out what’s on your little ones’ Christmas list of course. He’ll even give them some special money to spend in our toy shop as a treat.

You’ll find his wife, Mrs. Christmas at the train station. She’s a huge train fan and is so excited because she’ll get to ride the train with you as she sings a song or two (Makaton signed).

If this wasn’t enough, there’ll be crafts to get stuck into and reindeer food to make so it can be sprinkled it out on Christmas Eve. And that’s just for the children. Grownups, you’ll get a free mince pie to enjoy as you watch your little ones’ faces light up whilst they enjoy Christmas at Murton Park.
