Get ready for our special new event, A VERY MAGICAL CHRISTMAS AT HOPE NATURE CENTRE. Hop aboard the Snowflake Express, and enjoy a ride around our Animal Park, before stepping through the doors of the Toy Workshop. Here you will have your very own ‘meet and greet’ with Santa or Mrs Claus, and see where preparation for the big day happens. 

All children will get a present from Santa, and after your visit, you can enjoy the rest of the Animal Park. Adult tickets also include a hot chocolate and mince pie from our Wagon in the Animal Park.

Entry to the Animal Park for the day of your visit is included. You can arrive any time during the day of your visit to enjoy our Animal Park. We ask you arrive at the designated Snowflake Express station 5 minuites before the time stated on your booked ticket.
