The most wonderful time of the year

Whether you are looking to take the hassle out of Christmas with a luxury break at a hotel or want to treat the children to a special day out, you're sure to find something a little different here.

Get up close with the reindeer and meet Father Christmas at The Reindeer Centre - a truly wonderful experience for both adults and children alike, or take a steam train ride on a 'Santa Special' trip through glorious countryside with either the Kent and East Sussex Railway or Romney, Hythe and Dymchurch.

Make Christmas Shopping a magical experience, you'll be spoilt for choice at the County Square Shopping Centre, located in the heart of Ashford.  Bargains abound at The Designer Outlet  and for something special don't miss the annual late night Shopping in Tenterden

Great tasting local produce for the Christmas table is in abundance at the Festive Farmers markets,  and don't forget the choice of wines, ciders and juices to compliment your meal.  For these, head over to  Biddenden Vineyards   and a superb seasonal selection awaits you at the Fine Food Store at Chapel Down Winery

Help get yourself in the christmas spirit with some carols at St Mary's Church, Ashford or book tickets with the Visitor Information to see a spectacular pantomime at the Leas Cliff Hall.
