Mistletoe, mulled wine and mince pies, Christmas in Tunbridge Wells is a truly spectacular time of year and with somewhat half-hearted celebrations last year, the year before, and the year before, this year, Salomons Estate are pulling out all the stops for some well-deserved Christmas magic.
Festive afternoon tea [November 21 – December 23]
Few things are as quintessentially British as an afternoon tea, so when better to enjoy the decadent affair than at Christmas. Join Salomons Estate where during November – December, head chef Anthony and patisserie chef Jackie will be giving their afternoon tea menu a festive shakeup.
Expect classic Christmas favourites including brie, bacon, and cranberry finger sandwiches, orange, white chocolate and cranberry scones and white forest Christmas gateau!
Santa’s Grotto [December 18 – 23]
With a little mulled wine and enough mince pies we’ve managed to bribe Santa (and his elves) to visit Salomons Estate this Christmas. Bring your little ones along to enjoy a magical day out to meet Father Christmas and his merry elves, Sprinkle and Star. Help the elves decorate some delicious gingerbread houses, learn about the reindeers’ favourite food, and go on a magical Christmas trail before sitting down with the man in red himself for a yummy cup of hot chocolate. On the nice list? A Christmas gift might just be in store before the end of the day.
Dine with Santa [December 11]
Santa and his elves will be joining us for a three course Sunday roast to give them some much-needed fuel during the busy Christmas season, and he has invited you to join them! Indulge in a festive spread fit for the whole family as Santa makes his way round to listen to all your dreams and Christmas wishes. Adults £32.50 per person / children £16.95 per person.
Breakfast with Santa [December 24]
Can’t make it to Sunday lunch? Don’t fret! Santa will be returning on Christmas Eve for a hearty breakfast feast to prepare himself for a night of present dropping, and for those on his nice list – you might just receive an early gift! Enjoy a full English and continental breakfast buffet for just £18.00 per person. (Adult or child)
Hollywood Glamour Christmas Gala [Dates TBC]
This December at Salomons Estate we will be hosting several Christmas gala nights to kickstart the festive celebrations in style. Dates are yet to be confirmed; however, guests can expect a host of treats to get their teeth stuck into as they find themselves feasting on a delicious three course festive spread before dancing the night away with plenty of bubbles to keep them going.
Whether you’re treating your colleagues or have been put in charge to organise the Christmas-do amongst your friends, our Christmas galas are sure to impress. Tickets cost £54 per person.
Christmas Lunch [December 25]
Sit back, relax, and forget about the washing up as our banqueting team take care of Christmas lunch for you.
