Christmas at Bressingham

Buy Tickets

Christmas is always a magical time at Bressingham and is a very special experience for all the family. Under twinkling fairy lights, your Christmas visit to Bressingham includes a ride on the Steam Train on the Fen Railway for everyone both young and old, a festive spin on the Gallopers and a visit to Father Christmas, including a present, for children up to the age of 12 years. Add to that the fun of a wander round a very Christmassy Walmington-on-sea in the Exhibition Hall to see the Dad’s Army display and vehicles decorated especially for the season and you’ll find that there’s something for all ages to enjoy together at Bressingham this Christmas. Why not treat everyone to a yummy hot chocolate from the Café and give them a chance to add a few items to their Christmas lists (or tick a few items off yours) with a trip to our Gift shop too, where you’ll find our fantastic range of BigJigs trains, track and accessories. Book your tickets now, wrap up warm and come and make some wonderful Christmas memories at Bressingham this year.

More information about your Christmas visit to Bressingham

Booking is essential. Please book online HERE. Season ticket holders can ring or book during the year in person.

For 2021, there will be no live entertainment in the Village Hall. Father Christmas will be in his Grotto where you will be able to see and speak with him, and receive a present. Please note that you will not be able to enter the Grotto or to sit with him. (We are currently planning to operate as we did for 2020, depending on the restrictions in place at the time, and we may be able to relax some rules).

 Our 2022 time slots are for visiting the Grotto. This must be done on arrival at Bressingham. After your visit with Father Christmas you can enjoy the rest of the experience – train rides, Gallopers and a wander round our decorated areas.

Please arrive in time to park, get your tickets and make the 5 minute trip from the entrance to the Grotto

The loco sheds and gardens are closed at this time of year, we are only open for our Christmas experience. We are not open before the advertised time on any given day.

Father Christmas is offering letters delivered to your door this year too.
