Santa Claus is coming to town!

Ho, ho, ho, Merry Christmas!

Here's where you can find Father Chrismas this winter:

Jolly explorers... get set for a magical Christmas journey to Santa's grotto at Tong Garden Centre. You'll receive your festive passport and Santa's team will help you journey from the South to the North Pole, sharing their magic with you! You'll see how Santa's chief elf plots that magical journey on Christmas Eve before you make your way into the grotto to meet Santa and, if you're on the nice list, you can choose a gift from his toy shop!

At Stockeld Park, they always like to make Santa feel at home and have prepared him a beautiful log cabin all the way from Lapland. Santa will arrive in November towed by his trusty reindeers on his sleigh around the magical Enchanted forest.

Keighley and Worth Valley Railway - Join the Santa Special at Oxenhope, Haworth or Keighley Stations for a ten-mile return journey on our steam train, lasting around an hour. Experience nostalgia and the magic of Christmas in our specially decorated coaches, with festive music to get you into the mood. Santa and his pixies visit each child during the journey, delivering presents and the grown-ups are served with a mince pie and seasonal drink: the perfect way for you and your family to start the Christmas season.

An Audience with Father Christmas at Brodsworth Hall - Meet Father Christmas in the entrance hall of Brodsworth, dressed in sumptuous traditional colourful costume to tell tales of Christmas past and recite famous yuletide stories and poems. Join the audience to relax and listen to these heart-warming stories.

Join Santa and his special helpers for some festive fun this Christmas at the North Yorkshire Moors Railway, with the Santa Express departing from Pickering, Grosmont and Whitby Stations. Perfect for families with young children, embark on this magical adventure and meet Santa in his on-board Grotto.

At Thorp Perrow Arboretum follow Eric the Elf's festive trail through the Arboretum to Santa's log cabin grotto, where the elves are on hand to guide you through a winter wonderland, filled with magical creatures, arctic animals and snowy Christmas scenes. Santa waits in his cosy living room, with a cheery smile and gift for every child.

Christmas wouldn't be the same without a visit to Santa at Yorkshire's Winter Wonderland and this year he has a stunning grotto, with a magical setting of twinkling lights and a special gift for every child. Beside the rink, a street of wooden cabins depicting wintry fairy tale scenes will enchant young and old alike.

The Crimple Hall elves are waiting to greet all of the good little boys and girls before taking them down their magical woodland path to find Santa. A Grotto experience that will leave them mesmerised with the magic of Christmas!

The Winter Wonderland Grotto at Totties Garden Centre opens on the first weekend in Decemeber and runs right through until Christmas. Santa will be there, riding his sleigh in the grotto with his elf, to see if the children have been good this year.
