Peter Pan Christmas (live), Hever Castle, Kent back to all events
This Christmas at Hever Castle become Peter Pan and chase your shadow through Neverland to experience the wonders of never growing old.
Begin your experience outside in the grounds, take a magical journey along the immersive Christmas trail. Follow the one-way system and start your voyage in London in the nursery. Then, ‘fly high’ above the City streets into space and follow the directions to Neverland – second star to the right and straight on till morning. Discover where Peter’s friends The Lost Boys live, visit the Mermaid Lagoon, the Native American camp and be wary when you tiptoe past the Crocodile with his ticking clock and Captain Hook’s pirate ship at the dock. As the trail finishes, spot Nana the dog in her kennel.
After you have explored the captivating displays, meet characters from Peter Pan (Captain Hook, Peter Pan, Wendy and Mr Smee) as you wander through the gardens. In front of the Castle, ride the carousel (£1 – card only) and enjoy vintage fairground stalls including a coconut shy and hoopla (£1 – card only). Appreciate relaxed Christmas shopping in the Gift Shops, and sample delicious festive food in the restaurants and kiosks. The Play Areas will be open. On peak days there will be timed sessions and you may need to queue for your chosen Play Area. Entry is on a first come first-served basis.
Hever Castle is delighted to be working with Great Ormond Street (GOSH), owner of the rights to Peter Pan since 1929 when they were gifted to the hospital by Peter Pan author JM Barrie. Visitors will be able to donate to the charity during the Christmas event as well as purchase a special Peter Pan or Tinkerbell cookie in the restaurants in aid of the charity.
