This December, get a festive fix for the whole family at the new Christmas Village at Seal Bay, Selsey. Spend the day in a truly magical winter wonderland, with enchanting Christmas activities and entertainment to get you in the spirit.

Visit Santa

For the ultimate highlight, visit Santa and his helpers who will be spreading Christmas joy and bringing a magical experience for everyone to enjoy. You will have plenty of time to capture the perfect festive photo and discuss the all-important Christmas present list! And as all the little ones have been extra good this year, every child will receive a gift and a certificate to say how they have made the nice list!

Get your skates on…

The resort will be hosting one of the most spectacular real ice rinks on the south coast this winter, complete with twinkling fairy lights, festive music, and even some dolphins to help you around – get your skates on to get you in a festive mood.

Shop for festive treats

Stroll around the festive market showcasing arts, crafts, produce, and handmade goods for a great opportunity to find some unique gifts, whilst soaking up the atmosphere with some Christmassy treats!

It’s Behind You!

Christmas isn’t complete without a pantomime, and the classic panto favourite, Aladdin, flies into Seal Bay Resort this year! Hop aboard a magical carpet ride to a far-away land. Join the adventure as Aladdin falls in love with Princess Jasmine, discovers an enchanted lamp with his hilarious mum Widow Twanky and a mysterious Genie sets out to make his fortune.  But hiding in the shadows is the evil Abanzar, who will stop at nothing to get his hands on that lamp!
