Stockeld Park is getting ready for its most famous time of year, Christmas. You and the kids can enjoy all sorts of Christmas fun, from amazing illuminations to meeting Santa in his grotto. On top of that, you’ve got the amazing large themed outdoor playgrounds to explore as well as the beautiful woodland of Stockeld Park.
Found in between Wetherby and Harrogate, the parks award-winning Enchanted Forest will come alive at dusk every day over the Christmas period with its famous winter illuminations – which will transform Stockeld Park into a dazzling, twinkling winter wonderland.
The 2,000-acre historic park is home to one of the country’s largest and most innovative light displays. There will be dazzling effects, with a soundscape and animations that come together to create almost a mile of beautiful ancient woodland for you to explore.
The twinkling light creation comes to life at night time to create an enchanting experience for all ages to appreciate the magic. It all kicks off on the 20th November through to the 4th January 2022. Make sure you don’t miss it.
As well as the amazing light display, you can also meet Santa in his grotto! Santa will be arriving every day at 3pm on his sleight with two laps of the forest. You’ll then be able to meet old St Nick in Santa’s Grotto, the most beautiful experience for adults and children. Sat in his rustic wooden cabin, the whole family will feel all Christmassy after being greeted by the big man himself.
