With so much ‘not quite magical’ and plenty of bad press going on, with grotesquely expensive ‘Christmas Experiences’ in the news recently, I was pleased to find a magical experience that lives up to its name right on our own doorstep!.
Liverpool’s Lovehistory and Larkin’s Farm have created a magical Grotto experience at Croxteth Hall Farm this Christmas season, offering a truly interactive and theatrical event- with plenty of fun for all the family.
If you have not visited already, then you are certainly in for a thrill, as Croxteth Hall is transformed into a magical world of twinkling displays and festive delights.
This is a must to see!
Activities on the Santa Experience tour include an Animal Farm Tour, a Santa’s Workshop with Christmas grotto, plus a free toy from Santa for every child, which is might I add, all included in the one ticket price.
There is a wonderful festive Christmas atmosphere awaiting visitors, where Santa’s elves welcome families and take them on a delightful animated guided tour of the farm.
Children get the chance to see all the animals, including the little piglets at play, the billy goats grazing and the little donkey silently guarding the enchanting Nativity Scene, plus many more.
Children are invited to join the elves in Santa’s workshop in a dedicated arts and crafts area, where they will have the chance to get creative and make their very own festive decorations.
If all that excitement wasn’t enough, to end the experience children can then visit the magic Grotto where Santa will be waiting to greet them, and all the children who have been good all year on Santa’s nice list, will receive a toy from Santa as an early Christmas present.
The farm is open from 10am-5pm (last entry 4pm) with tickets priced at just £10 per child and up to 2 adults go free.
Croxteth Hall Farm Christmas Grotto is open till Tuesday 23rd December.(Not running 9th, 15th, 16th December)
This is no disastrous festive fun-park, but a true learning experience with hands on activities engaging with all children and with the added bonus of them seeing ‘creatures great and small’.
The parklands provide an added attraction with super walks and great things to see.
One person you might see prancing about in a long leather coat wearing ‘room spray’ aftershave from Florian in Venice called Chamber Of The Important Gentleman, is somebody looking for the most amazing Christmas experience planet Earth has ever seen.

This Halloween the Victorian Walled Garden at Croxteth Country Park will be turned into a nightmare folly of brimming evil as Lovehistory turn this twee genteel place into a brand new terrifying tour experience. A park will be transformed into the stuff of nightmares that plunge the visitor into new levels of terror.
For the Halloween period Lovehistory will bring history alive with the ‘Garden of Lost Souls’.
This is a theatrical tour of horror within the atmospheric Victorian Walled Garden. And what better place to be left in, with the key to this secret garden lost ….with you in it.
This is a place where horror reigns with the undead and ‘scareactors’- the human role-players -waiting to prey on the weak.
The famous hall looms over the high walls of the garden which is almost untouched by time and keeps its secrets securely guarded. It has been said that if you look closely you can see the ghosts of the past hiding-watching you.
On the tour, keep close to the Gate Keeper for he leads you on this menagerie of death.
Dance with the mad widow if she pulls you out of the crowd….. crawl through the tunnel of insanity and be met halfway by an insane with a big chopper.
Squeal when you see the Pumpkin Man come alive!
For this ‘Spooktacular’ event, ‘The Garden of Lost Souls’ will awaken the ghosts of the past and you will hear the soul wrenching whispers and demented cries of the deserted souls lost from our world, forever lost and made to wander the earthly garden you will be in.
On the 21st, 28th, 29th and 30th October, Lovehistory will delve into the depths of history to expose the secrets of the night with this special horror themed homage to all those weird and wonderful 19th century writers and film makers who have made the genre what it is today.
The Tour is definitely a good Halloween bash for all the family, but a word of warning….stay near the Gate keeper and……….watch your back.
Lovehistory has recreated the spine chilling atmosphere of the true Victorian horror by bringing back the ghosts, vampires and ghouls of the past……….to entertain you!
Tours from 6pm, 7pm, 8pm,9pm (approx 1 hour)
Special 11pm tour on 30th October only
