We are delighted to have added the Christmas carriage rides with Mrs Claus and her elf to our festive offering. We would encourage people to book their rides early, not to miss out.

I would urge anybody to come and admire their work and select unique gifts for Christmas. I’m so pleased that we are able to open later on Wednesdays to give more people this opportunity to see our gifts and Desire exhibition.”
