We attended on Christmas Eve with our grandson who had come from the UK. From the moment we entered Santa's grotto to find him"asleep" all children in the room were captivated.

He waited all day to tell Santa what he wanted but the only problem we had is that the children didn't really have an opportunity to tell Santa what they wanted. We waited until the... More

Enjoyed a family trip to Westport with complimentary tickets for their Winter Wonderland event. Pros. House was beautifully decorated in an authentic Victorian-Christmas style: it was like a scene from Narnia :) Great fun activities: make your own decorative Yule log; decorate your own gingerbread man; face painting- the kids loved it! Father Christmas was well done: kept the kids... More

And a well informed Santa who left our 3 year old in awe as to how he knew so much about her. He was just perfect, just said enough and didn't... More
