This year Bekonscot will be extending the season until Sunday 12th December. From December 1st we will be running our Winter Wonderland event. Numerous festive scenes will appear around the village and the Snowflake Train ride will provide a magical Christmas visit for your pupils.
Bekonscot does not charge a cancellation fee should Government restrictions force a change of plans in the future. If you would like to discuss the possibility of organising a school visit, please contact our Education Officer at email@example.com
