Spot the elves to find Father Christmas in his workshop

At Ness Botanic Gardens

Christmas in Cheshire

This Christmas why not visit one of the towns or villages of Cheshire, where you can buy all your Christmas shopping, relive a traditional Christmas at one of the area's wonderful historic attractions, stroll through glorious gardens or experience the beauty of the dramatic landscapes.

At Christmas time many of the stately homes that scatter the Cheshire landscape come to life in a way that uniquely captures the joy, traditions and anticipation of the season. Tatton Park’s Christmas programme has become a tradition in itself, step into the mansion's world of traditional carols and meet Father Christmas at the farm.

Many of Cheshire's historic ‘Gardens of Distinction’ are open throughout the winter with festive events, spot the elves to find Father Christmas or go wreath making at Ness Botanic Gardens or visit Rode Hall’s Christmas Farmers Market for tasty treats and unique gifts.Christmas in Cheshire

Santa will be very busy this Christmas not only will be visiting various Grotto's around the county he will also be in unusual locations waiting for your visit. You can even take a trip with him on one of Anderton Boat Lift's Santa Trips or Christmas Cruises at National Waterways Museum.

This is just a taste of some of the places you can visit this festive season, see the full list below.

* Please check opening times with individual attractions before your visit.
