You can book to visit Santa in his grotto along with his Elves online here.
Our unique experience will create magical memories to last a lifetime! This year children will enter Father Christmas’ new magical Grotto after being greeted by his festive little helpers. In groups of 4, children they will enter the Grotto, where they will take part in a Christmas arts and crafts activity. From here they will enter Father Christmas’ sitting room. Each child will get to tell Father Christmas what they would like to find under their sparkly tree on Christmas morning. Every child will receive a gift for being ‘nice’ all year before exiting through the gift shop and out onto Whitefriars Square.
£4.00 per child under 12. Maximum 2 adults per child please as space in the grotto is limited.
