Christmas at Bewl Water Country Park


Tickets for a magical Christmas experience at Bewl Water, southeast England's largest reservoir, are now on sale, offering families in Kent and Sussex a heartwarming holiday celebration.

Located in the village of Lamberhurst, just a short 20-minute drive from Royal Tunbridge Wells, Bewl Water invites you to join in the festivities from November 18 to December 24. For an unforgettable two-hour Christmas experience, tickets start at £40 per child and £15 per adult, which includes complimentary car parking for the duration of your visit.

Book your tickets at and enjoy access to festive activities, storytelling by Santa's elves, themed magical lands, play zones, and an exclusive meet-and-greet with Father Christmas to conclude the experience. Don't forget to capture the magical moments with plenty of photo opportunities along the way and savour seasonal drinks and sweet treats or purchase souvenirs to cherish.

Sunisa Avery, Events Marketing Manager, said:

"Meeting Santa Claus is the highlight of many families' Christmas celebrations, so we're thrilled to introduce a brand-new meet and greet to our local community, along with interactive activities and many more festive surprises for a spectacular Christmas experience."

She adds, “Our team has worked tirelessly over the past six months to bring this vision to life and it will be a magical experience for the entire family".

When booking your tickets for Christmas at Bewl Water, session times indicate your visit time to Santa's Grotto, so families must arrive at least two hours early to make the most of all the festive activities beforehand. Upon arrival, Santa's Head Elves will warmly welcome your children, presenting each with goodies and their own stamp card to track their progress through each activity. Make your way through the enchanted wonderland and festive play zones to begin the magic, before arriving at your first destination.

Experience Highlights:

Santa’s Post Office: Compose a special letter to Father Christmas with the help of Santa's elves and ensure express delivery straight to the North Pole!

Rudolph’s Treats: Mix up a special snack for Santa's reindeer to fuel their Christmas Eve journey.

Mrs Claus’ Bakery: Decorate delicious gingerbread with colourful icing and sprinkles before enjoying your tasty creation.

Christmas Crafts: Personalise wooden ornaments in Santa's craft workshop to light up your Christmas tree at home.

Festive Flavours: Warm up with hot chocolate or coffee, indulge in goodies from the Candy Land sweet shop, and get marshmallows to toast or pick up a cherished souvenir.

Santa’s Grotto: The grand finale awaits as you round off your Christmas experience in Santa’s Grotto. Meet the man in red and tell him all your Christmas wishes, before those on his nice list receive an early gift.

Sunisa adds, "When booking your tickets online, you'll be asked for the name of each child and what their interests are. This allows us to tailor your Santa visit to your family."

Visits to Santa's Grotto are limited to six people, but there will be multiple sessions throughout the festive season.

Thursday to Sunday bookings are available from November 18 to December 5, followed by additional sessions on Wednesdays until December 17. As the school holidays approach, tickets will be available every day leading up to Christmas Eve.

Please note that Christmas at Bewl Water is an outdoor event under marquees, so we recommend dressing warmly and wearing suitable footwear.
