CHRISTMAS is well underway at Thornton Hall Country Park, Thornton-in-Craven, where families are being invited to take part in a festive adventure.

New for this year, the award winning visitor attraction has introduced a Christmas village with grotto; Father Christmas and his helpful elves. Visits can be for individual families and also for groups, including clubs, schools and pre-school groups; there is also a mini- adventure, aimed at pre-schoolers, where children get to meet Mr and Mrs Claus at home in their kitchen.

Children come away with a gift, and visitors can also book a meal and soft play session after their adventure.

A spokesperson said: "Get ready to immerse yourself in the true wonders of Christmas and all the magic it brings."

Christmas adventures at Thornton Hall Country Park continue right to Christmas Eve. Find out more at:
