Saturday 27 November – Thursday 23 December 2021

Please note that Father Christmas is now sold out.

We are delighted to announce that Father Christmas will be turning to Harewood this festive season, for a very special family Christmas experience.

Please note that Member tickets are only valid on presentation of a valid Membership card on arrival.

Make their Christmas magical with a private family visit to Father Christmas at Harewood from Saturday 4 December. This year he will be taking up residence in the historic Old Library, where twinkling lights and rich decoration make for a truly authentic experience. There will be storytelling and gifts to add a sprinkle of magic to all who visit.

With each individual family group having their own short private audience with Father Christmas, tickets are limited for this unforgettable experience.

Each child will receive a gift from Father Christmas and there will be an opportunity for a family photograph.

Frequently asked questions

What does my Father Christmas ticket include?

As well as your private family audience with Father Christmas, your ticket includes entry into the magically decorated Harewood House (including Upon a Christmas Wish) and beautifully lit grounds during normal opening hours.

When should I arrive?

Please ensure that you arrive at Harewood 30 minutes before your time slot to allow for car-parking etc. Please make your way to the House entrance 5 minutes before your time slot. Due to the tight schedule, we are unfortunately unable to accommodate any latecomers.

We recommend that most visitors continue their visit around the House (including Upon a Christmas Wish) after their visit with Father Christmas. However, last entry to the House is 16:45, so if you have a later slot with Father Christmas, you may want to look around the House before your Father Christmas Experience. Show your Father Christmas ticket to our staff when you arrive at the House.

The House will close at 17:30, with the car-park closing at 18:00.
