Children in Dorset writing to Father Christmas should get their letters off by Friday, December 8, the Royal Mail says.

For 54 years, Royal Mail has had the special privilege of managing Santa’s mailbag and seeing what children really want for Christmas.

With just over six weeks to go until Christmas, Royal Mail is once again lending a helping hand to one of its most special customers.

To ensure Santa receives your letter on time, please make sure you write to him, using the correct address, on a stamped envelope. 

The address is: Santa/Father Christmas, Santa’s Grotto, Reindeerland, XM4 5HQ.

Don’t forget Santa needs to know your full name and address to reply.
