Ho Ho Ho!

A true Christmas Experience, the highlight of the visit will be meeting Father Christmas in his magical grotto, where children will be invited to select a gift of choice from the well stocked toy shop.

You can also graduate from Elf School, snuggle up in front of some Christmas films, visit the sweet shop, build your own teddy bear*, catch a live show – or visit The Snow Inn for festive food and drink. Make sure you catch a ride on The Jingle Express too!

Don’t miss Mrs Christmas’s Kitchen where you can decorate your gingerbread and adults can collect their complimentary cup of mulled wine or non-alcoholic alternative, along with a tasty mince pie.

Our animals love to see our guests throughout December, so be sure to pay a visit to our farmyard friends, you can pick up animal feed on arrival* – or why not make some reindeer food* to take home with you to make sure Father Christmas’s animals are well fed on Christmas Eve?

Each child receives a letter, from Father Christmas, ahead of their visit (subject to booking early enough in advance).

All of our ticket prices include all day access to Kent Life.

Father Christmas will be visiting:

Saturday 26th & Sunday 27th November

Saturday 3rd & Sunday 4th December

Saturday 10th & Sunday 11th December

Saturday 17th through to Saturday 24th December

Please note that the time you book for is the time you will meet to enter the Grotto. You are welcome to arrive anytime before your booked time slot, however – please ensure you arrive at least 15 minutes prior. All of our ticket prices include all day access to Kent Life.

We advise that you arrive early to make the most of your experience at Kent Life.

Experience Christmas – Visitors with additional needs

We will be offering special experience times for those with additional needs on the morning of Saturday 26th November.

This gives families an opportunity to meet Father Christmas in a calmer environment, with quieter music, lower lighting and smaller group sizes, to reduce overloading the senses and create an experience which is accessible for all.

Bookings for the additional needs event will be available from mid August and can only be booked by phone – 01622 763936, as there are a limited number of sessions.
