Where to book Breakfast, Lunch or Afternoon Tea with Santa in 2023



For a lot of people, going out to a café, garden centre or family friendly pub and having breakfast with all the trimmings, surrounded by beautiful decorations and topped off with a visit from Santa, has become as much of a tradition as dry meat and disgusting veg.

This can be a great experience for kids and make some amazing memories.


Here are the "Breakfast/lunch/afternoon tea with Santa" experiences that we know of so far. This post will be updated when we here of any more. If you know of any that I have missed, please let me know, so that I can add them to the list.
