Father Christmas will be coming to Ipswich next month to host a meet and greet with children in his grotto. 

Santa Claus will be coming to Christchurch Mansion between Saturday, December 11 and Sunday, December 19. 

During the 30-minute experience, families can enjoy a group story session before meeting Santa and receiving a special gift.

There will also be festive craft activities and well as a free Constable Christmas trial with season refreshments available in the tearoom.

Tickets start at £8 per child with a £1 ticket for an accompanying adult and can be booked online

With Christmas just over a month away there are plenty of places you can visit Santa this year in Suffolk.
