We have already booked Santa to appear in person with his friend Sam the Dog who will guide everyone up to the Gallery Giant Christmas tree where Santa will have gifts for all the children, providing they have been good of course, before heading downstairs for Christmas Day Lunch.

The Windermere Restaurant plays host to Christmas Day Lunch served between 12.30 and 2.00pm with all the trimmings – be aware this can be a noisy affair full of party poppers and festive cheer.

The Queen will address the nation this afternoon and a slice of Christmas cake accompanied by a fresh cup of tea will be served to all.
