What Is It?

An enchanted encounter with Wirral’s only reindeer herd is sure to make this Christmas a magical and memorable one for you and your loved ones! 


Embrace all things christmassy with a drive through our festive lights to our brand new Reindeer Lodge, where you can get closer than ever before to our gorgeous family of reindeer.  


The relaxing and enchanting surroundings make for a magical experience when meeting Primo, our handsome male, and four of our 6-month old reindeer calves in this personal and private encounter. It is here, where you’ll get lost in the history of these remarkable animals, learn about their life in the snow and listen to the sound of their hooves click. 


Take advantage of this time to ask any questions and snap those all-important photos, before you continue your drive to where campfires, hot drinks and smores await! End your evening roasting marshmallows and indulging in festive fancies with your loved ones, before heading home with a truly magical memory to cherish this Christmas.
