Father Christmas at Preston Manor

Saturday 14, Sunday 15, Friday 20, Saturday 21, Sunday 22 & Monday 23 December

According to legend Sussex was the last county in England where imps and fairies were seen. This Christmas Preston Manor delves into local traditions and sparkles with enchanting woodland-themed fun. Come dressed as an imp or fairy, or a goblin or an elf, hear tales of fairy-folk and most exciting of all learn that you too have a secret magical name all of your own.

There’s plenty to do and see at Preston Manor this Christmas. Meet the friendliest Santa and his playful elf then explore two floors of the festive-themed house. Strike a pose in a Victorian photo-parlour and then visit our pop-up vintage café with treats for the little ones and coffee and mulled wine for the grown-ups (charges apply).

During daylight hours the Manor gardens are open to explore. There’s even a children’s trail to help lead your way.
