Santa's Pantaloons trail image

Oh no! Santa has been so busy preparing for the big day, he's gone and lost his pantaloons and all of his reindeers.

Santa and his sleigh have landed in the old grounds of Hestercombe and he needs your help. Can you help Father Christmas and his woodland friends; Bill the mouse, Cyril the squirrel, Wilbur the fox, Hetty the hedgehog and Nigel the mallard, find Santa's Pantaloons before Christmas is ruined?

Once you have helped find Santa and his friends in the Landscape Garden, head over to our Formal Garden to help find Santa’s Reindeer that flew away when he crashed into Hestercombe's grounds. You need to find all 9 reindeer and write down the letter each one carries to discover the secret Christmas word!

Present your booklet and say the secret word at the Gift Shop to receive your special prize from the Gift Shop.
