We have been coming to Frosts to see Father Christmas for four years now and always get in early to help us get into the festive spirit and to let the children pick some new decorations for the tree. Frosts always put on great seasonal activities for the family and we had already been the month previous for pumpkin carving and the Wizards school.
The booking process is online and very straight forward and I’ve always found the parking to be good. I love how every year something new seems to get added to the display, which always makes it feel fresh and exciting. We really loved the snowman the children could climb into, which make a great picture opportunity and if you are like me and like to get in early, you have the advantage of getting some lovely pictures fit for Christmas cards. The children always love to see the real reindeer’s and Jasmine loved being able to pet one of them.
We headed off to Santa’s grotto and were met with some very welcoming elves who took us in to a beautifully decorated room for sing-song and a few jokes. From there we were led to another room ready to decorate gingerbread men. Tristan loves gingerbread men and loved decorating his and he even managed to sneak a few sweets to keep him going. The elves then lead you in to see Father Christmas one family at a time, which I really appreciated as it make it feel personal and special. As always the Father Christmas you see is very authentic and has the most amazing real bead. He’s very jolly and seemed to really be enjoying himself. The look upon my two children’s faces is priceless and always makes the trip worthwhile. The children were presented with a lovely book and two gifts, which you select in the booking process, which are decent and age appropriate.
After we said goodbye to Father Christmas and the elves and headed out to explore the rest of Frosts and let the children choose some new decorations. The displays in Frosts are stunning and very Instagram worthy. After all the excitement we decided to head to the café and let the children pick some Christmas biscuits and us adults had some large hot chocolates. You really could spend a few hours looking through all the wonderful decorations and displays and we even headed back outside again to say goodbye to the reindeer’s before we headed off home.
Thank you Frosts, you never disappoint and we hope to see you again in the New Year for some more seasonal activities for the children. Visit Frosts Garden Centres website here to look at all the events going on right now.
