Where to spot Santa in Tunbridge Wells this Christmas

Christmas is the perfect time of year to make family memories, and what better way than to meet the man in red himself? From sharing breakfast with Santa to exploring an enchanting wonderland with his cheerful crew, Tunbridge Wells is buzzing with excitement as he makes his much-anticipated return this festive season.


Christmas at Bewl Water

Immerse yourself in the enchanting Christmas wonderland at Bewl Water, where Santa and his crew have transformed the woodland into a magical adventure. Located in Lamberhurst, just a short 20-minute drive from Tunbridge Wells, this delightful experience is available from November 18 to December 24.

Tickets start at £40 per child and £15 per adult, which includes car parking for the duration of the event.

Children can enjoy a variety of festive activities, including gingerbread decorating, creating reindeer food, writing letters to Santa, and Christmas crafts. Mischievous elves will entertain with storytelling performances, and families can explore the themed magical lands and play zones where there will be plenty of photo opportunities.

Refuel with delicious festive treats from the Candy Land sweet shop before your private 10-minute visit to Santa’s Grotto. Here, children can share their Christmas wishes and, for those on the nice list, receive an early gift!

Note that booking times mark the start of your grotto visit, so be sure to arrive two hours early to enjoy all the fun on offer. Wrap up warm as Christmas at Bewl Water takes place outside under marquees.
