He’s got a twinkle in his eye, rosy red cheeks, a beard as white as snow and he’s set up camp in our cosy ‘Off Piste’ chalet at Alexander’s. Santa’s looking forward to meeting as many children as he can, to give them each a special present and regale them with stories from his magical book before he heads back to Lapland to prepare for his busiest day of the year- Christmas Eve!

Every Sunday throughout December your children can meet the man himself in the toasty warm surroundings of our Alpine-themed pop-up restaurant, ‘Off Piste’- with its fluffy faux fur throws and twinkling lights, it’s an extra special festive treat that they won’t forget.

Santa Sundays at Alexander's Skipton

Your child will receive a gift, as well as the wonderful opportunity to gather around Santa and enjoy a lovely storytelling experience. That’s not all, they’ll also take a stroll through our magical winter terrace which is adorned with beautiful fir trees before heading into our function room, The Lawrence, to take part in hosted Christmas crafts, taking any creations home with you when you leave.

We’re halfway through ‘Santa Sundays’ and spaces are limited, so book your time slot now by clicking the BOOK button at the top of the page. Tickets £10 per child.

Christmas at Alexander’s is perfect for families because there’s something for everyone to enjoy, whether you’re hunkering down in ‘Off Piste’ and sharing yummy fondue- we have a Little Reindeer menu so the kids can join in too- or sitting down together for a more traditional dinner from our Festive Menu.

Settle in, because from morning till late, we can accommodate groups big or small and with live music and entertainment on weekends throughout December, there’s always something for the whole family.

Kids will also love our Christmassy augmented reality colouring-in app and game, Enchanterwood, which is available to play in-house now- just ask a member of staff for an iPad!

Fill this wonderful time of year with the four F’s; fun, family, friends and food, and let Alexander’s help to make your festivities extraordinary.
