Harrogate Father Christmas Experience and Codebreaker’s Christmas

Festive fun awaits children at the Cedar Court Hotel in Harrogate this December, with two entertaining interactive events. At the Father Christmas Experience, children can train to be an elf in Elf Village, meet Father Christmas and pick up their Elf Graduation Certificate.

Codebreaker’s Christmas sees children take part in an escape room style event. Santa needs your help with this top secret mission, pass the tests and crack the codes to save Christmas.

With lots of Christmas activities taking place in the Harrogate district, your little ones will enjoy the magical excitement right up until the big day itself.
