Christmas at Bewl Water

Santa couldn’t miss a visit to Lamberhurst in Royal Tunbridge Wells. From November 18th to Christmas Eve, he’ll be setting up his workshop at Bewl Water. The largest reservoir in Southeast England, this parkland, popular for outdoor family adventures, has transformed its woodland into a magical winter wonderland for its newest experience: Christmas at Bewl Water.  

Tickets for Christmas at Bewl Water include festive activities like gingerbread decorating and reindeer food making, an exclusive meet and greet with Santa in his cosy grotto, and a present for each child.  

You’ll also enjoy live Christmas storytelling performances from the elves, marshmallow toasting in Candy Land, and seasonal treats from the Winter Warmers cabin. While you’re there, be sure to explore the themed magical lands and play zones and capture plenty of photos for lasting memories.  

Tickets are priced from £40 per child and £15 per adult, including parking for the event’s duration!
