Butser Ancient Farm - and now for something really special this Christmas..

A magical winter awaits at Butser Ancient Farm with unique events which will really add something special to your families' Christmas.

If you have already visited Father Christmas but would still like to get out of the house and avoid the high street, then this is perfect for you.

On Friday 18 December Tales of Winter Magic (storytelling with Red Phoenix) in the Grand Roundhouse at 3.45pm and for those who get out of school early that day there is the Roman Christmas in the Villa (Saturnalia) at 2pm.  Each child will also get a chance to create something to take home and receive a gift from Butser Ancient Farm.  Hot drinks will be available, so arrive in good time to get a hot chocolate and bag your seat by the fire!  We even offer free parking!

For those seeking a little calm at this time of year, how about the Winter Solstice Meditation in the Roundhouse on Saturday 19th December, 2-4pm. Home-made refreshments are included. 

Tickets can be bought online at  and the Butser Shop is also a great place to get some last minute Christmas presents which are most definitely not on the high street!
