Join us for a twilight experience in the home of Father & Mrs Christmas and be warmed by all its enchanting magic, making memories to treasure.

This is a magical family encounter with Father Christmas, accompanied this year by Mrs Christmas, to add extra seasonal sparkle.

Your journey begins with a cheery visit to Father Christmas’ cottage, where you’ll be met with a very warm welcome from Mrs Christmas, followed by an encounter filled with interactive stories and songs, a photo opportunity with Father Christmas and a personalised traditional gift for every child.

Your Christmas experience doesn’t stop there – there’s lots more fun to be had! Explore the dream-inspired installations in the main House, both on the State Floor and Below Stairs, following the story of George and Gerald Lascelles, two little boys with very big dreams on Christmas Eve.

There’s also a special Father Christmas treasure hunt around the House, and a programme of festive family activity throughout the whole of Harewood.

Toast marshmallows on an open fire, embark on magical trails around the grounds, discover enchanting Christmas lights on The Terrace, before finishing your day with your Twilight Treat in Christmas Cottage.
