Where to meet Santa Claus in Hampshire 2021



As we move into Christmas, with just under two months before Santa drops presents under our trees, the question on everyone’s lips is, “Will he come to Basingstoke this year?”

Of course the answer is yes. In fact, Santa will be making stops throughout Hampshire in November and December, but hurry, reservations are required, although some can be made on the day of the tour, subject to availability.

While the dates are already booked quickly, the Gazette has compiled a list of five places to meet Santa this year.

Festival venue, Basingstoke

Arrived on Saturday November 6 at 9:00 am, Santa will be at Festival Place in Basingstoke.

Each reservation lasts up to 19 minutes and can accommodate up to four children.

There is a £ 5 fee to visit Santa and receive a gift, and while you can take your own photos, professional photos can also be purchased

Spinnaker Tower, Portsmouth

This December 4th, Santa will host a breakfast in the famous Spinnaker Tower at Gunwharf Quays, Portsmouth.

You’ll have the chance to enjoy a continental-style breakfast with Santa and his elves in the Spinnaker Kitchen and Bar overlooking the harbor, with a closing date of December 24.

Children will also be able to write their greeting letters to Santa Claus, before having the opportunity to meet the main man themselves.

The package also includes the ability to take photos and receive freebies, while also having access to the Spinnaker Tower, where you can explore extraordinary views and experience the glass Sky Walk.

While a limited number applies, kids will also be able to build their own plush with heart-shaped charms and birth certificates.

Two sessions per day are available, at 9:00 a.m. and 10:30 a.m.

Finkley down, andover

Open from 9:50 a.m. on Saturday 4 December, children will be able to collect their Christmas Passports which will allow them to participate in all the activities of the day. When collecting Christmas passports, they will also be able to collect letters to send to Santa Claus through the intergalactic mailbox using a special golden ball.

Once the activity is over, the elves will stamp their passports, ready to arrive at the kitchen ready to meet Mrs. Claus, where they can decorate their own festive treats.

Children can also meet Santa Claus, cook magical reindeer food and collect their gifts.
