What could be more magical at Christmas time, than a visit to meet Santa Claus himself, in the warmth of the Montalto House library?

Santa at Montalto House is an unforgettable experience, and offers a variety of festive activities for the whole family.

- On arrival, meet Santa's Head Elf, and listen carefully to the secrets and magic that await - Wrap up warm as little ones (and big ones) take a journey – accompanied by the Head Elf – through our Enchanted Christmas Trail, before reaching Montalto House where the magic really begins

- Once inside, Mrs Claus will be checking to see who's been naughty or nice, and with so much to do from Christmas Letter writing, gingerbread decorating, reindeer food making and other surprises, you'll have plenty of time to impress

- Cosy around the Christmas Tree, and enjoy a memorable sing-along and story telling moment with Mrs Claus

- Santa Claus, seated by the fireplace in Montalto Library, will meet with you personally where you can chat, take pictures, and receive a special gift

- The excitement doesn't stop there, however, as Santa's elves have been busy this year making the experience at Montalto even more magical. Be sure to hold on tight as Santa's runaway train roller-coaster awaits! If that's not enough, our Elf Fun House will certainly lift your spirits, but make sure to watch out for the more mischievous of Santa's helpers

- Adults will enjoy refreshments while the kids enjoy the celebrations and entertainment
