Christmas at Pontefract Castle

Welcome to Christmas at Pontefract Castle. We've decked the halls, trimmed the tree, and baked the mince pies. All that's missing is someone to enjoy the fun... which is where you come in!

Make some beautiful festive wreaths to hang on your door, meet Santa over a delicious breakfast at the Liquorice Cafe, listen to the magical sound of carols echoing through our dungeons and much more.

We can't wait to share all this festive magic with you. See you soon!
