Santa's Grotto Banner

Billions of letters are sent to Santa every year – you’ve probably written one yourself!

But how do we make sure every single one reaches the North Pole and gets sorted, so the right presents are delivered to the right house? Magic of course… with the help of the Robin Family!

Enchanted robins take you on a magical, storytelling journey before meeting Santa in his grotto to share your wishlist and choose your very own gift from his toy shop.

Please note, The Magical Journey lasts approximately 30 minutes and is a group session experience with a maximum of 12 children per session.To read the terms and conditions click here.

Purchasing your ticket is easy... simply click the Book Now button,pick your tickets, date and time then follow the instructions on screen to complete your booking!

We look forward to welcoming you!
