The Igloo is set to host a multitude of shows for all the family, allowing you to take your visit to the next level. Browse through the delightful wooden chalets of Mistletoe Town and come and enjoy a drink or two in our toasty warm Jingle Bell Bar . With a hot chocolate or mulled wine in hand, take a moment to gaze at the show-stopping Castlemas Snowfall that takes place twice a day. Bring your loved ones together and capture a photo to last a lifetime, under the sensational Castlemas illuminations.

Tonbridge Castle, Castle Street, Tonbridge, Kent TN9 1BG

By Car: There are a variety of Car Parks close to Tonbridge Castle. We would encourage attendees to head to the larger Car Parks that are only a few minutes walk from Tonbridge Castle, to ensure that congestion is kept to a minimum during the event and around the Castle grounds itself. The Cannon Car park will be closed throughout the duration and access will only be given for Accessible badge holders for Drop Off/Pick Up.


Pick up point: If you are being collected or dropped off and you do not have additional access needs, we suggest the pick up point of Tonbridge Swimming Pool.

By Train: Tonbridge Mainline Station is just a 10-minute walk to the Castle with trains running to and from London Charing Cross, Sevenoaks, Ashford, Canterbury and the Coast (Ramsgate & Hastings). Tonbridge is close to primary road links including the A21 with access to the M25 and M20.




We have made sure the site is fully accessible to those in wheelchairs and with access needs. Track-way has been laid over the Castle lawn to ensure everyone is able to move around the site with ease, however, please be aware the site can still become wet and muddy depending on weather conditions.


Both The Igloo Theatre and Santa's Castle are also accessible (and heated!) however, we do ask that you specify any additional needs upon checkout of your booking. Our staff will always be on hand to assist in any way they can, however, more information can be found below in our FAQs. if you have any additional questions ahead of your visit, please do not hesitate to get in touch by emailing:


Accessible Parking: There are accessible car parking spaces in the Cannon Car Park and the Upper Castle Car park, however, we cannot guarantee availability on these spaces. Therefore, if these spaces are full, our car parking attendant will be on site to allow you into the Cannon car park for drop-off or pick-up only, if there are additional access needs within your party. Once drop-off is complete, we then suggest parking the car in one of the car parks mentioned above.
