With all the mythology surrounding Christmas, I've partnered with Holiday Lettings and TripAdvisor to remind you this holiday season that Reindeer are real! Nothing says Christmas like the sound of jingling bells and swooshing sleighs. But where can you go to meet real-life Rudolphs? Holiday Lettings rounds up the best places to see reindeer, from Alaska to Rovaniemi.
The Reindeer Centre, Ashford, England
Meet and hand-feed the herd at the Reindeer Centre before the animals fly off to help Santa with his Christmas deliveries. While you’re there, you can visit Santa’s cosy log cabin and sit on the jingling sleigh that’s waiting for the big day.
To see some more animals, head to the local South of England Rare Breeds Centre where you can pet many traditional farm breeds. You could also step back in time at Ashford Borough Museum, where you can spot ancient graffiti and railway paraphernalia, including model trains and a ticket office. Walk round nearby eco-themed Stour Valley Arts and catch one of their cutting-edge installations in centuries-old Kings Wood.
