One of the keys attractions besides the post office, sleigh and Santa’s log cabin is the option to book ahead to secure a specific time (within 30mins) and date. This allows people to plan their day and get the date they want.

A professional photographer is on site to capture that magical moment. All photographs come in a professional 8×10 format with black silver trim card frame and are available immediately afterwards for purchase. A digital option is also in the form of a Santa USB stick where you can have all of your photos to print as you want. The digital package also includes one printed photo.


The quality is fantastic and it provides families with a timeless memento. You choose and collect your photos immediately after your journey through the Santa Experience.

We are happy to give you a little hint about what the Imagine experience will involve, but as the element of surprise is essential to the magic of Christmas, we can’t give away everything at this stage!

What we can tell you is that there will be a Christmas market, an interactive North Pole experience, a train journey that will take you to our winter wonderland walkway which culminates in a magical visit to Santa in his snow covered log cabin in the heart of the enchanted Christmas woods. You will enjoy a warming hot chocolate along the way and of course there is lots of other unexpected festive fun during the Imagine experience!

Remember to dress ‘Christmassy’ and although the majority of the experience is indoors, there are outdoor elements so dress accordingly!

Rumleys Open Farm provides a great location for many different occasions from birthdays to school tours and an excellent day out for all the family. The farm has a wide range of activities for children of all ages and has many exotic and domestic animals.

While their is fun aplenty, the ethos of the farm is to provide an educational experience to all visitors, young and old. As we have become a more urbanised race, we have lost touch with nature and with how our food is cultivated and how it ends up on our supermarket shelves.

As well as an open farm Rumley’s is a real working farm, operating 7 days a week buying and selling produce and animals. The complete food cycle is on view from the farm all the way to our shop where you can buy produce from the farm.
