Book your Santa’s Grotto tickets now.

We provide magical experiences for you and your little ones.

Our secret grotto is tucked away in a tranquil corner of the woodland. When you arrive, you’ll be greeted by Santa’s elf, who will accompany you and your children through the nursery. In the 30 minute visit, your children will meet Santa, settle in to hear a story from Santa's elf, and receive a small gift. And, if your children bring their Christmas wish list, we even have a special postbox so they can send it off to the North Pole.

There will be subtle photography as the experience unfolds to give you a beautiful record of the day. To ensure that the magical experience isn't interrupted, we avoid the formality of single portraits in favour of natural photography by our experienced photographer.

Naughty or nice, we promise that you and your little ones will leave our Santa’s grotto full of Christmas cheer, love, and joy.
