Alongside a visit to Father Christmas, there will be face painting and Christmas craft activities alongside Groombridge Place's regular attractions which include a walk through the adventure forest to find the giant swings and the wooden ship and rope bridges at Crusoe's World.
Tickets to see Father Christmas can now be booked online, with visitors asked to pick the date and time they'd wish to come, and cost £11.95 for a 15 minute slot for one child. Adults are free with a paying child.

But a ticket to see Santa does not include general entry to Groombridge Place so families must ensure they have both in order to gain entry.

The Groombridge Cafe will also be offering a choice of hot food as well as Christmas cake, mince pies and hot drinks for festive visitors.

The attraction is open 10am until 4pm and parking is free.
