Discover the very best of Yorkshire Attractions with your family and friends this Christmas with a fantastic assortment of festive family events across Yorkshire. Whether you’re looking for something to do in the school holidays or you want an extra special Christmas adventure, there is something for everyone this winter.

Harewood House will be open for the first time in five years for a truly magical Victorian Christmas event. With the help of Michael Howells – award winning Set Designer from ITV’s Victoria series – the house will transport you back to Victorian Britain where you can experience Christmas from both upstairs and downstairs. At the National Coal Mining Museum for England, you can visit Santa Underground where he will be greeting mini miners and their friends. This unique Santa experience is one that will definitely be remembered in years to come. Or join Cannon Hall Farm and make your own cuddly toy at their Toy Making Elf Adventure. Although, the workshop elves will be checking who’s been naughty and nice!
