Feel free to join in if you know the tunes!

Bands and choirs will perform in the cellarium from 2 PM to 3 PM, with the last admission at 4 PM, and the estate closing at 5 PM. No need to book a separate ticket for Music and Lights; it’s included in the regular admission.

Create cherished family memories this holiday season at Ripley Castle.

Immerse yourself in the enchanting world of Christmas as Father Christmas himself graces Ripley Castle with his presence. Delight your children with an array of festive activities that will warm their hearts and kindle the magic of the season.

As an extra special treat, Willy Wonka, the whimsical confectioner, will make a guest appearance, adding to the wonder. The grand finale awaits with an audience with Father Christmas, presented in a delightful mini panto style show, all set in the magical backdrop of Ripley Castle.

Your adventure commences at the entrance opposite the Tea Rooms, where our joyful Elves extend a warm welcome into the Castle.

Here, your little ones can engage in delightful activities like decorating Christmas cookies and crafting heartfelt letters to Santa. For the adults, the stables POP UP Cafe/Bar offers refreshments, while the children can savor a comforting hot chocolate. (Tickets include hot chocolate for the children and a special treat for the adults)

Willy Wonka himself will be roaming the stables, ready for photos and interactions before his show begins.

Once the creative activities are complete, your journey continues through the festively adorned stables’ rooms of the castle. Your child can enjoy a hot chocolate, possibly munching on their freshly decorated cookie. Our chief Elf will dazzle everyone with his Christmas balloon modeling skills, creating unique balloon models for each child, to be collected on your way out. (Please note that these cannot be taken into the show but are meant as keepsakes to cherish later.)

Moving on, you’ll enter the East Wing area, where our Chief Elf, Elfie, will perform an enchanting Elf Magic show filled with comical magic tricks, inviting the boys and girls to participate in the magical fun. The Magic Show will run for approximately 10-15 minutes.

Our special guest and “Willy Wonka style Entertainer,” who will mesmerize you with magical crystal balls and enchanting hoops, is set to amaze you with a short yet spellbinding show. Approximate duration: 10 minutes. You may have the opportunity to meet Willy Wonka and capture magical moments in photos before the show.

Every child with a ticket will have their name mentioned during the performance, creating magical moments. Those with upgraded Deluxe Tickets will enjoy additional surprises from Santa during the show and their chat at the end! (Please note that Deluxe child tickets are limited, with only 5 available per session.)

After the show, every child, whether they have a Standard or Deluxe ticket, will have the opportunity to go up with their family for a memorable photo with Santa and share any last-minute gift wishes. Only child ticket holders will receive a small gift from Santa, while Deluxe ticket holders will enjoy more time with Santa. The performance/show will last approximately 20 minutes.

As children and families exit through the East Wing glass doors into the courtyard, our cheerful Elves will provide a delightful bag of sweets from the Sweet Cart located next to the exit.

Make sure to dress warmly, as your Ripley Castle Christmas Experience ticket also grants you access to the beautiful Ripley Castle Gardens. Take the opportunity to explore and perhaps catch a glimpse of Rudolph and his friends in the neighboring deer park.

No visit to Ripley Castle would be complete without a leisurely stroll through the Ripley Castle deer park and Gardens. Some of the oak trees here are a thousand years old, standing tall with their gnarled branches. The park teems with wildlife, including fallow deer, rabbits, squirrels, heron, Canada and greylag geese, mallard, teal, pigeon, pheasants, woodpeckers, and, if you’re lucky, a kingfisher as it darts by. The park walk leads you around the castle’s large ornamental lake, across the waterfall, and into the deer park itself.

Before they leave, children can choose a special Christmas sweet treat from one of the Elves.

Your total indoor experience time will range from 60 to 75 minutes, ensuring a memorable and magical time for all.
