Don’t expect everything over the top. Nice experience with people who made the children feel very comfortable plus you avoid going to town and get stress with masses of people. This is a hassle free option. It’s also run in a Charity place which is lovely. Particularly if you are in areas like Hackney and Islington,it’s just down the road. Our six years daughter loved it!
The most wonderful Father Christmas Experience. It is authentic, magical, immersive and fun. My 3 and 5 yr olds absolutely loved it. So much thought has gone into it and is hands down the best we’ve done. Definitely worth the trip across London.
A really magical immersive experience. I was a little anxious my girls (aged 5 and 3) would be scared of Santa but it's done in such a clever way that at one point my 3 year old took hold of Santa's hand and tried to take him home with her! Good value money and a great way to entertain the kids (and grown ups) for an hour!
