possibly the best Santa Experience for little ones in Norfolk

Norfolk’s sell-out Christmas experience is back bigger and better than ever before for 2019 – Weekends 30th November/1st December; 7th/8th December; 14th/15th December and daily from Thursday 19th through to Monday 23rd December.   We’re delighted to announce that Norfolk’s favourite Santa has agreed once again to take time out of his busy schedule at the North Pole to come to Junior Farm at Wroxham Barns with his Elves for his hugely popular ‘Santa Experience’ and this year there’s even more fun to be had with our ALL-NEW Animal Nativity Barn where you can meet our real North Pole reindeer.

 An immersive and very special ‘Santa Experience’ lasting almost 2 hours and NO QUEUES!  Bringing alive the magic of Christmas for your little ones and an opportunity to spend quality time with Santa and his Elves.  Children take part in Elf Academy with our mischievous North Pole Elves and at their Graduation Ceremony they’ll receive an Elf School Diploma and Elf Hat to take away and there’s plenty of singing, dancing and games in between too. There’s Christmas crafts too where the children can decorate a lovely memento to take away. Next, meet the man in red himself, find out whether you’ve been naughty or nice and receive a quality gift.  The fun doesn’t stop there and BRAND NEW this year the children will collect a Magic Key from Santa himself.  Hold on tight to that Magic Key and head to our exclusive undercover Animal Nativity Barn to spend time with Santa’s real reindeer and donkeys. This area is exclusive for children and families on the Santa Experience and cannot be accessed by the general public.  

 Grown-ups don’t feel left out as we have yummy Wroxham Barns mince pies for you – included too! And there will be lots of photo opportunities where you can take some fabulous images to keep and to share with family and friends.

Best suited for children aged 2 to 10 years although we welcome all ages. Buy tickets online at  on general release from 2nd September. This event sells out every year so be sure to get your tickets as places are limited for each event for your comfort.

Prices range from £10.25 per child (aged 2 and above), from £7.75 for Under 2’s and include all of the above PLUS all-day unlimited access to indoor play and all the other Junior Farm activities.  Discounts available for Season Ticket Holders and Adults.

Important Information

Is there suitable access for wheelchairs?

Junior Farm is accessible to wheelchairs but please be aware that all paths on the farm are gravelled. There is ramp access into the event venues.


Can I bring food and drink?

Because the event is held on Junior Farm, sadly no food or drink is allowed, but of course your wristband allows access on and off the farm all day which you might like to do before or after The Santa Experience event.


Are there toilets close by?

Toilets are situated close to Junior Farm – in the courtyard near the Wroxham Barns Restaurant.

Can I go on the farm and see the animals?

Yes of course.  Your tickets allow access to come and go on Junior Farm for the whole day.  Please note seasonal opening times 10.00am – 4pm, soft play closes 3.30pm.

Can I bring extra adults?

Every child place has an allocation of 2 adult spaces if needed (we limit numbers to make sure this is a personal experience for everyone attending) – a discounted Santa Experience admission applies for adults.  We do sometimes have extra adult spaces and these will be known 24hrs before attending – please phone 01603 777102 for details. 

How can I get in contact with you?
Can I purchase tickets on the day?

Each event usually sells out – our online booking system will show you the latest availability but if you are unsure please contact us on 01603 783762.

Arrival time and place?

On arrival, head to the Junior Farm kiosk. Please ensure you arrive at least 10 minutes before the allocated event time (or before if you wish to see the animals first).  This gives the elves time to sign you in, give you wristbands and get you ready for The Santa Experience.
