Santa’s Post Office at Christopher Place

It’s a busy time of year for us all, not just Santa!

You can be sure your child’s letter will get to the North Pole in plenty of time at St Albans very own Santa’s Post Office.

Children will step into an enchanting world and be greeted by the elves where they write and send their letters to Santa.

Take a break from shopping, while the kids sit down and get their wishes down on paper. They then post their letter into a special post box, press a magic button and watch their letter on its journey to Lapland. Every child receives a reply.

Santa’s Post Office is in Christopher Place in St Albans for 2 late night openings (4-8 pm 14 November and 12 December) and on weekends 11 am – 5 pm Saturdays and Sundays from 14 November to 22 December

There’s no need to book and entry is free!
