Join us in a home away from home for an exciting adventure as an evacuee at Christmas!
Christmas during the Blitz is hard work for Father Christmas and his helpers. With children spread all over the country through evacuation, the team here at Eden Camp thought we would lend Father Christmas a hand and invite the children to come to him!
Explore a 1940s bedroom, hear the story of an evacuee first-hand and explore the Winter Wonderland on the way to finding Father Christmas.
