Book your tickets now to see Santa in his enchanting woodland grotto at The Bowes Museum.
He's found space in his busy schedule to fly in to make Christmas extra special from the 1st to the 22nd of December.
On arrival you'll be greeted by his friendly elves who'll show you to his toyshop where you can create festive crafts before meeting Santa himself in his cosy sitting room grotto, where he'll complete the magic by presenting each eligible child with an early Christmas gift.
It costs just £12 per child, and accompanying adults are free.
The popular Christmas Market returns this year, from 10am - 4pm on Friday, Saturday and Sunday 13 - 15 December, with handpicked stalls in both the grounds and Museum selling a wonderful array of locally produced food, drinks and crafts accompanied by live music and entertainment.
