A Magical Christmas Trail


The Tropical Butterfly House
Saturdays and Sundays from 30 November 2019 | 10am - 4.30pm (See below for exact dates)

Enjoy a wonderful winter's day out! Take your family on a magical journey through the wildlife park to meet Santa and his elf helpers at his woodland cabin at the Tropical Butterfly House, Wildlife and Falconry Centre.

Pick up your activity trail and discover all the exciting things that await along the way. Gather up all your Christmas wishes in a Letter to Santa and send it on its way to the North Pole at the Owl Post Room and beautifully decorate a Christmas biscuit. Get your Christmas cracker jokes at the ready and join the cheeky Elf onboard the festive tractor sleigh ride then grab a seat for the panto-inspired festive free flying bird and animal show. Can you find all the mischievous elves hidden around the wildlife park?

Complete your trail by meeting Santa and his helpers at the woodland cabin, follow the Elf gatekeepers along the magical woodland path and receive a chocolate coin treat from Santa himself!*

Also don't miss amazing animal encounters with a chance to make a Christmas present for a lemur or meerkat for a small charity donation. Spread some Christmas sparkle with festive face-painting and arts and crafts available in the activity centre. Treat someone special to a very merry Christmas with a Christmas Afternoon tea available at Lottie's Coffee Lounge.

Trail activities above are included in normal park admission. Activity times may vary. Santa's woodland cabin is open from 11am and closes at 4pm, see signage for daily breaktimes.
