1. Snow & Tell at the Story Museum

This is a Christmas show with stories and music for everyone to enjoy at The Story Museum.  The story is based on the classics The Elves and the Shoemaker, How the Robin Got His Red Breast and Dickens’ Christmas Carol and they are brought together with new songs to create a beautiful Christmas tale.  

Suitable for children ages 3+, the performance lasts an hour with a 15 minute interval. 

2. Visit Father Christmas

No Christmas holiday would be complete without a visit to see Santa in his Grotto.  There are lots of venues where you can visit him around Oxfordshire – see our pick here.

3. Choose a Christmas tree

A Christmas tree is a ubiquitous sign of Christmas and no home is complete without one.  There are a number of places around Oxfordshire you can go and choose one, including Hadsham Farm where you can cut your own. Appleton Christmas Barn offers a great experience including reindeer to feed, and decorations to buy.  Blenheim Palace is always a treat to visit at this time of year and you can purchase a tree grown on the Estate – or if you want the best of the best, head to The Tree Barn at Christmas Common who have supplied trees to 10 Downing Street!

4. Ice skating

Make the most of the cold weather and head out to do some ice skating.  You can try the outdoor rink at Millets Farm, or if you’re not feeling so hardy, there is Oxford Ice Rink in Oxford.  

5. Do a festive trail

There are a number of festive trails to complete around Oxfordshire this Christmas.  If you are looking for a wet weather activity then the trails at the Ashmolean or the Museum of Oxford might be most appropriate.  If you want to get some fresh air, then head down to the Botanic Gardens for their Green Christmas activities and see their Christmas trees decorated with natural decorations, or go to Waterperry Gardens for the reindeer trail.
