Where to see Santa in Harrogate & Knaresborough & when do tickets go on sale?
The very best places to see Santa in Harrogate & Knaresborough.
Please note- prices & experiences offer massively. Some places you get attraction entry & additional features included in the Santa price, in others it’s just a visit with the big man himself. Check out the various attractions websites for full information.
Authors note…. I hate myself for adding to the panic, but the fact is that many of the best local Santa experiences already have tickets on sale and some even have limited availability so if you’ve only got a few options for when you can see Santa then you need to plan early.
So if you’re wanting to see Father Christmas in the Harrogate & Knaresborough districts (or even a bit further afield) then get booking….
