Christmas At Normanby Hall


Santa’s Grotto opens this weekend

It’s the most wonderful time of the year! The Normanby elves have worked their magic and the Hall has been elegantly decorated for the festive season. You can enjoy the trimmings every Friday, Saturday and Sunday in the run up to Christmas, from 11.30am to 4pm.

Santa’s Grotto also opens this weekend, on 1 December!

This is a wonderful experience for little ‘uns, buy your ticket from the Gift Shop on the day then head to the Grotto in the Walled Garden, filled with twinkling Christmas trees. Go through and meet Santa and receive a present next to the real roaring fire. You will also receive a ride on the miniature railway.

Tickets cost £6.50 per child and can be bought from the Normanby Hall Gift Shop on the day.

The Grotto is open on 1, 2, 8, 9, 15, 16 and 17 December between 11am and 3pm. A £3 car parking charge applies, or display your Normanby membership.


Watch the Normanby team feed the deer

Grass becomes scarce in the winter for our deer herd so we feed them sugar beet. They love the taste! You can watch the Normanby team feed them daily, from 1 to 24 December at approximately 11.30am. It really is a rare treat to see these magnificent creatures so close to the Hall.

It is free to watch, there’s just a £3 car parking charge (or display your Normanby membership)


The elves have left the shelves and are hiding in the Normanby grounds! Pick up a trail sheet from the Normanby Gift Shop for £1 and find them to spell out a Christmas treat. Don’t forget to hand your completed sheet back in to claim a free festive bookmark. You will also be entered into a prize draw to win your very own naughty elf.

The tw’elf days of Normanby trail (see what we did there!) will be available from 1 December to Christmas Eve!

Happy hunting!
