Thank you to everyone who supported Delamere Forest by visiting us at Christmas time. We'll post details about Christmas 2016 here...
What do other visitors say?
I've been going to delamere for Christmas for 15 years and must say I was a little disappointed too last year. The choir was missed and there didn't seem to be as much stalls there. The wait for the Santa grotto is ridiculous and was nearly 2 hours, there needs to be some sort of booking times or tickets put in place as way too long for small children.i must say the Santa is amazing and very real.

Thank you for your comments. We try to provide an enjoyable experience for our visitors who come to buy real Christmas trees, however, are aware of the popularity of Delamere and try to put things in place to limit queues.

This was our third visit with our son to see 'santa'. We were a little disappointed this year. The walk to the grotto was not as good as previous years. There is normally lots to see and keep the children occupied but this year they only had Christmas trees along the route. Santa was fantastic and our son still believes he is the 'real one'! He took time to talk to him and make the visit very special. The train ride through the forest was not running this year nor did they have the tent/choir which adds to the experience. Hopefully they will bring these things back again for next year as this is what makes it so magical and keeps people coming back year after year.
