Exotic Zoo, Telford Christmas 2023

This one is a real local for us in Telford.  Around 4 years ago, our local ‘Animal Man’ set up camp in an independent garden centre.   Following acquisition of their Zoo License, the small Zoo has grown in size and stature over the past year and is now an excellent little day out.  Father Christmas takes up residence in their Igloo and children encounter several real animals before meeting the man himself.  With a chance to see some old favourites such as Little the Donkey and Dodger the horse along with some more exotic creatures such as Elsa and Rosie the snakes, the children get a fabulous experience and lots of opportunity for hands on too!  There is a small café in the garden centre that serves excellent tea and cake and the children have a gift included in their Father Christmas visit too.

Santa's Christmas Party at the Cunard Building, Liverpool

The Polar Express 2023

Our experience took place at Telford Steam Railway and without a doubt, this has to be the BEST Father Christmas experience we have had over the last few years!  Booking tends to get filled up around 6 months before hand at The Telford Steam Railway but I did notice that other stations are coming on board (for example Moor Street in Birmingham who at the time of writing this, still had tickets available!).  It all begins with the obligatory dressing in pyjamas and dressing gowns (with extra layers if it is cold!) and arrival at the station where you see part of the story played out by actors…As in the story, the train arrives with the Conductor who calls for anyone who wants to get aboard.  If you have your ticket, you can get on the train!  With hot chocolate and cookies served by dancing waiters and waitresses, the journey is exciting and festive and with a visit from Father Christmas who presents that all important bell, it was an experience that I think will stay with us forever!

I took my daughter who has special needs to the last winter gathering w horse drawn carriage rides which were amazing…she LOVES horses

But I am mostly writing in regards to the Santa they had!! He was absolutley amazing! Honestly…the most compassionate, funny, and caring Santa I have Ever come across!! My daughter is non verbal..he took his time to wait and listen for her talker… he joked w her and truely communicated in a way that I haven’t seen many people let alone a Santa do before..they are alot of time uneasy and it shows…like hurry up and move her along..other kids are waiting. I would show pix of them interacting w one another if I could!! Truely amazing.. Thank you sooo much.

Thank you passing this along, this made my day! Have a blessed day :)
