Experience Christmas at Kent Life

Join us for our award-winning Christmas Experience!


A festive extravaganza awaits you at our Christmas Experience! Get ready to say “Ho Ho Ho!” as you embark on a magical journey. The highlight of your visit will be meeting Father Christmas himself in his enchanting grotto. Little ones will be thrilled to choose a special gift from the wonderfully stocked toy shop.

But that’s not all! You can immerse yourself in the holiday spirit by graduating from Elf School, indulging in heartwarming Christmas films, exploring the delightful sweet shop, and even building your very own teddy bear*. Be sure to catch an enchanting live show and make a stop at The Snow Inn for delectable festive treats and drinks. And don’t forget to hop on The Jingle Express for a merry ride!

For a tasty treat, head to Mrs Christmas’s Kitchen where you can unleash your creativity and decorate gingerbread. Adults can savor a complimentary cup of mulled wine or a non-alcoholic alternative, accompanied by a scrumptious mince pie.

Our friendly farmyard animals are excited to meet you too! Don’t miss the chance to visit them and even feed them*, or why not make some special reindeer food* to take home and ensure Father Christmas’s reindeer are well-fed on Christmas Eve?

Rest assured, you’ll receive a detailed itinerary of all the exciting activities from Twinkle Toes the elf prior to your visit. And the best part? Our ticket prices include all-day access to Kent Life, so you can arrive at any time and enjoy the festivities to the fullest. Get ready for a Christmas experience like no other!
