November 26th - December 24th

This year, Eshottheugh Animal Park is working overtime to host our GRANDEST festive season yet! So why not bring your family to the animal park for some festive family fun!


Santa will be at the park in his wonderful wintry themed grotto with his Christmas Donkeys! Children will be able to tell him their Christmas Wishes and Santa will be giving lovely presents to every child who meets him! Santa has agreed to visit us from 11am on:

Saturday  26th & Sunday 27th November

Saturday 3rd & Sunday 4th December

Saturday 10th & Sunday 11th December

Saturday 17th & Sunday 18th December

Saturday 24th December

It is £5 per child to meet Santa which includes a special Christmas Gift. Normal animal park admission fees also apply.

Times are subject to change. Due to demand last year, pre-booking is recommended but not essential to ensure that you have a wonderful festive visit! Alternative times could be available by appointment. Phone us on 01670 787778.

Winter Word Letter Hunt
