Come and meet jolly Father Christmas in his magical grotto as he returns to the Royal Pavilion Estate. Little ones can tell Father Christmas what they’re most looking forward to this Christmas and receive a present.  Forget the queues and long waits, this year you can book a private time slot and enjoy an exclusive experience. We’ve even got winter wonderland activities for kids to keep everyone happy before or after meeting the man himself.
