Santa's Grotto Banner

Santa's Grotto is now SOLD OUT

Santa has asked us to make sure all his visitors, big and small, are as safe as can be this Christmas so we’ve worked together to bring you a slightly different, although just as magical, grotto experience!

This year, your Magical Journey to Santa is an exclusive family experience, where your children and accompanying adults journey along a magical pathway, escorted by one of Santa’s finest Elves. You can stop along the route to snap memorable family moments in this enchanting setting before arriving at the grotto to meet Santa and share your wishlist for Christmas. You’ll then choose your own gift from the North Pole toyshop.
