Hayes Garden World has pulled out all the stops this year to create the perfect winter wonderland. Children can venture to meet Santa at the North Pole - but his train is missing! You must follow Santa's journey along the tracks to discover his journey to Hayes. Along the way you can search for the illusive golden tickets, throw snowballs with the rambunctious snowmen and help our penguins fish for their food. When you finally find Santa's train you can climb aboard the stationary carriage for a fantastic photo opportunity to remember your day out before arriving at Santa's workshop to make some reindeer food for our very hungry reindeers! Your last stop is meeting Father Christmas himself for more photo opportunities, a gift, and book. More details of the event can be found on their website by clicking below...
