On the weekend of the 16th and 17th of December Exbury Gardens will be putting on their special Christas event, the Exbury Gardens Postal Express. The gardens will have a festive twist and families can enjoy a short train ride, Christmas crafts and a Christmas tree trail that will take you through the gardens. Yard Wood will be open from 10am till 4pm for the Exbury Gardens Postal Express.
The Postal Express is available from 10.30am till 3pm. Tickets are £6 and will take you on a ride short ride around the gardens. While the gardens aren't as spectacular through December, you can still enjoy the Woodland and the Christmas decorations that are up for the festive season. The Postal Express includes a mailbox that goes straight to Father Christmas, and children can post their own drawings for the chance to win a special present at the end of the day.
After the train ride children can enjoy some small Christmas crafts at Mr. Eddy's Tearooms while mum or dad enjoys a bit of cake and a warm drink. Once you're warmed up there will be time to head back out to the gardens to follow the Christmas tree trail.
