Grand opening of ‘Christmas at Bewl Water’

The rumours are true! Santa has landed ahead of this year’s grand opening of ‘Christmas at Bewl Water’ on November 19. Situated in Lamberhurst, southeast England’s largest reservoir now resembles an Enchanted Woodland created with meticulous detail and has something for everyone. With peak-time tickets selling out fast you won’t want to wait much longer to secure your family adventure this festive season.

Running until Christmas Eve, tickets are available from £40 per child and £15 per adult, which includes parking. The experience is perfect for young families, where visitors will enter via a twinkling light tunnel and immersive soundscapes before exploring various wonderlands, each with a unique theme. Narnia’s wardrobe doors open to a magical journey through make-believe lands and every twist and turn has been designed to capture the imagination.

Bewl Water is nestled in a famously breathtaking landscape and as part of our ongoing commitment to supporting our community, we are dedicating an exclusive day to a number of local charities and their workers by way of giving back. We feel honoured to welcome so many who help out and serve others all year round, and there is nothing like the magic of the season to inspire people forward in the work that they do. We believe that we all benefit when the community works together and it is important to us to show those who knit our communities together through their acts of kindness just how much they are appreciated.

From a life-size gingerbread house to the wonder of Fairytale Land, Santa and his hard-working elves are making sure that the grotto is packed full of presents, that every twinkling light is in top working order, and that the oversized gingerbread men know their positions. They have also been making sure that Candy Land is stacked to the roof with sweet treats, and the Winter Warmers Cabin is overflowing with hot chocolate and marshmallows to toast.

The stage truly has been set to see children and adults alike be captivated by Bewl Water’s wonderland. After exploring the Enchanted Woodland, and being swept up in Fairytale Land, children will be welcomed into Mrs Claus’ bakery, the Elves’ Workshop, and Santa’s Post Office, where at each stop they will be guaranteed a creative and fully interactive experience. 

To make the most of everything there is to enjoy, guests must arrive at least two hours ahead of their scheduled session. This is because their booking time marks their visit to meet Santa in his enchanting grotto – the grand finale of the Christmas adventure.

If all this sounds like the Christmas magic you have been looking for, we are urging parents and caregivers to secure their spot leading up to December 24, especially as tickets are selling fast. The easiest way to do this is by booking online at

You can also keep up with us over on Instagram (@Bewlwater) where you will get an exclusive behind-the-scenes look at this incredible experience. Just be careful not to show those young eyes too much – we can’t wait to see their faces light up as they step into Christmas at Bewl Water!
