GIFTED REVIEW | The Christmas Experience at Lotherton Hall 2021 is bigger and better than ever before. There are some exciting new attractions added to the usual lineup this year and I’m sure the kids and the whole family will love it. The most exciting news is that for the first time, Mrs Claus will be joining Santa Claus to make it an even more festive and fun Christmas experience in Yorkshire. Below are some of the details you’ll need to know when visiting the Lotherton Hall Christmas Experience in Leeds 2021.

Father Christmas at Lotherton Hall 2021

Santa IS coming to Yorkshire this year and bringing a very special guest … The official Press Release:

Lotherton announces special sixth anniversary Christmas Experience with an extra sprinkle of festive magic and a record-breaking start to the festivities

Popular family attraction, Lotherton, has announced that Santa will return to the heart of Yorkshire this Christmas with a very special guest. Yes, for the first time ever Mrs Claus will join her husband to sprinkle more magic than ever before across the region for a very special sixth anniversary of the sell-out Christmas Experience. 

From 27 November 2021 to 2 January 2022, The Christmas Experience will return for its sixth fantastic year, and the elves have been busy tweaking the tinsel and adding the last sprinkle of festive fairy dust to make this year even more magical than ever after a challenging 2021. 

It’s been a record-breaking start to the festivities, with more than 15,000 tickets for the Christmas Experience at Lotherton sold in just seven days. 

While Mr and Mrs Claus are dusting off their suits and boots, ready for an immersive family experience that visitors will never forget, Santa’s diary is filling up fast with families across Yorkshire looking to make this the most magical Christmas yet. 

Mrs Claus will take up residence in Lotherton’s kitchens where she will be decorating gingerbread and sprinkling some extra magic over the House’s festivities. She’ll also be supervising those cheeky elves as they bring back Christmas crafts in the Stables where children – and creatively minded grown-ups – will be able to decorate a Christmas Eve plate or make Christmas decorations.

Returning to the joy and magic of a traditional Christmas, visitors will enjoy a new and exciting festive woodland walk through the grounds of the stunning Lotherton estate. Revellers will journey through the winding paths filled with twinkling lights and enchanting larger than life installations of Christmas traditions including a giant Christmas cracker, the chance to step inside a Christmas card, adventure through a snow globe tunnel and explore a maze of presents.

Tread quietly and you may be able to hear the fairies giggling and whispering in their secret hideaway Fairy Dell, before exploring the stunning Hall decked in all its festive finery. With tickets starting from just £4.40, visitors can marvel at an Edwardian Christmas table, go on a Christmas Tree hunt in the Hall, and explore the lives of the Gascoigne family from the late 1700’s. 

And of course, no Christmas Experience would be complete without a visit to the main man himself. Santa will be in The Elf Village ‘Under The Wishing Tree’, waiting to greet boys and girls, hear their yuletide wishes and give them a special early Christmas gift. Pre-school children will also have the opportunity to visit Santa in his cabin during the day.

The Christmas Experience opens on 27 November 2021 and is run by Lotherton and Breeze. Tickets are available now, with a number of visit options; early booking is highly recommended as spaces are limited and strictly on a pre-booking only, time-slotted system.

More About Lotherton Hall and their brilliant Christmas Experience in Yorkshire

Lotherton Hall is a beautiful Edwardian country home set in the West Yorkshire countryside. I also just happen to be 10 minutes down the road from where we live. I have shared many pictures of our visits there over the past 3 years. We were super excited to be going to their Christmas Experience event. 

I’m not going to go on too much about all the different things to do, I’m going to show you in pictures. 

Lotherton Hall House At Christmas – Pictures from 2019

The house itself is stunning inside and out. Here is a video of the light show from the front of the house. 

The Lotherton Hall Christmas Trees! 

The Christmas trees inside the house at Lotherton Hall are just perfect! Every single one is decorated so well it instantly gets you into the festive spirit and makes you want to go home and redecorate your own tree to within an inch of its life.

We’re so excited that the house is open again in 2021 after being closed last year. It’s not the whole house but enough of a lovely Christmassy vibe to get you into the spirit!

Meet Santa and Mrs Clause at The Christmas Experience 2021

This year, for the first time, Santa has help from Mrs Claus too. Whilst she’s manning the Gingerbread decorating activity, the kids can meet Santa too. They have taken up residence under the wishing tree

There are some lovely crafting stations with the elves too. Please refer to the website for more details as some of the activities have sold out already, but even so there is so much to do at the Christmas Experience at Lotherton Hall that you won’t be disappointed.

The 12 Days Woodland Walk 

The Lotherton 12 days of Christmas walk has had an upgrade. It now features some great interactive stops, as well as some fun facts along the way. The lighting takes your breath away. I would definitely recommend starting with this because if you leave it until the end of the evening you might not finish. 

Top Tip: pack your wellies, it can get a bit muddy. You can take your push chairs on the walk, but it could get very muddy.

The Christmas Experience at Lotherton Hall has something for everyone. I’d recommend taking warm clothes, and wellie boots because it’s also quite muddy in places. It also takes at least 3 hours, minimum, to see all the attractions and participate in all the activities so give yourself plenty of time, or make a day of it.

There are a number of different pricing options, depending on what exactly you want to do so please do check out The Christmas Experience Tickets page for the various pricing & ticket options. 

If you are looking for a great family day out and Christmas experience in Yorkshire, this one is perfect for the whole family.
