Overview

Blithbury Reindeer Lodge, nestled in the heart of Staffordshire, is home to England's largest working Reindeer herd. Over 150 Reindeer roam freely across our beautiful 30-acre site, which opens to the public for special events throughout the year. We are the only place in the country where visitors can see, fuss and even feed so many Reindeer of varying ages and types; from babies and young calves, to sleigh-pullers and our incredibly tame show Reindeer, many of whom are stars of the small and big screen. Christmas at Blithbury Reindeer Lodge is a unique and magical experience. With hot chocolate, mince pies, an authentic sleigh ride pulled by our specially trained Reindeer and, of course, a visit to Santa, where else would you want to visit at Christmas time? We're not just for Christmas though as we open our gates for special events throughout the year. From meet the babies events to Reindeer handling and family fun days, we offer something completely different to traditional farms and zoos.

Very warm welcome on arrival. Knowledge of staff excellent, animals all appeared very well cared for. Lovely to be so near the reindeer. A different and interesting “day” out. Price very reasonable.

We've been the last couple of years in the lead up to Christmas with our little ones. They love feeding the reeindeer and meeting Santa. It's a nice experience and worth doing if you have the time/money.

Came here for a bit of lunch with family. The staff were very friendly and we didn't have to wait long for our food. I ordered a unicorn shake which both tasted and looked amazing. We will definitely be coming again. Thank you!

We visited on the 23rd December. Although it's not a cheap day out, everything is presented well and had a lovely Christmassy feel. The reindeer look well cared for and there was plenty to do. I feel that a sleigh ride could've been included in...More

You did need to book but it's great because they do limit numbers meaning it's not stupidly busy.

3 hours would be more than enough. Depends on how many children as well. Could do in 2 hours but would be a little rushed for the children so 3 hours sounds about right.
