Eden Project

Eden Project – Meet Father Christmas

Meet Father Christmas and his reindeer at the Eden Project

Each visit will consist of a simple trail around Eden and then your allotted session with Father Christmas.

Please make sure you arrive at Eden at least one hour before your allotted session, so that you have enough time for your group to complete the trail. The time of your session will be on your ticket.

When you arrive at Eden, check-in with our elves in our Ticketing Hall. Each child will be given a small bag and a letter from Father Christmas, with details of the trail around Eden. The bag will feature in Father Christmas’s story and will be exchanged for something special when they meet him.

Sessions with Father Christmas will start promptly on the hour and last 30 minutes. Please arrive at Father Christmas’s tent in the Arena at least 10 minutes before your allotted session. There will be a short story and then a chance to meet Father Christmas, if your child wishes.

Fun activities

Father Christmas will be coming to Eden for a bit of peace and quiet so he can plan his busiest time of the year. He’s looking for young helpers to get involved in all sorts of fun:

  • Meet real reindeer: these beautiful animals will be at Eden throughout Father Christmas’s stay.
  • Follow the trail of exotic and tasty plants: help Father Christmas find the ingredients for the food that helps his reindeer fly.
  • Hear a story by a roaring fire: gather with other excited visitors to warm yourself in Father Christmas’s cosy home and listen to him tell a lovely story.
  • Meet Father Christmas: say hello to the man himself – you never know, you might even leave with a little piece of magic!
