We visited at the beginning of December 2013 with our 2 children aged 4 and 6. We booked over the phone and collected out tickets on the day. This was a wonderful visit, all the staff were very friendly and made it a very enjoyable experience for all the family, the experience was very well planned and organised, the children (and adults) were involved in the trail to find Santa and the children loved every minute, we got to meet the staff (Maids, stable hand, butler, lady of the house and cooks) the children enjoyed looking for the lost items (carrots, mince pies). The trail ended with meeting Santa, the children met Santa as a group with the other children who were on the trail but don't let this put you off they were with him for at least 15 minutes and he spent time chatting to them all and even singing with them he then invited each child up to receive their present. It was truly lovely and well thought through. We had also visited Santa at another attraction in the area prior to this day and although we had enjoyed this experience too it had been considerably more expensive and our children said they enjoyed it less. I believe the Santa Trail at Tamworth castle is excellent value for money and well worth doing, we will be booking again next year.
