Santa will be at Landguard Fort on Saturday 17 and Sunday 18 December, so all the good girls and boys can meet him before he prepares for his deliveries on Christmas Eve!

The fort will host Felixstowe’s big festive family treat. There will be festive themed rooms and displays, craft activities, snow machines and a special Christmas children’s trail to complete before visiting Santa and his elves in his magical grotto, where he’ll have a present for every child.

Landguard Fort General Manager, Nicola Barker, says: “Santa really enjoys coming to Landguard Fort and we’ll be busy making it extra special for him and all his visitors. As well as the grotto and craft rooms there will be an exciting Felixstowe Museum exhibition as well as hot chocolate, mulled wine and mince pies to buy along with seasonal music to get everyone in the Christmas spirit.”

On the 17 and 18 December when booking your tickets, you can choose the time you’d like to enter the fort. To avoid congestion at this popular event there will be 50 tickets available at 11am, 50 more at 11.30am, 50 more at noon, continuing each half hour until the last entry time at 3.30pm. The fort will close at 5pm.
