Santa's Grotto and Elf Workshop

The elves are looking forward to welcoming you to their little workshop where you can make some super Christmas craft, play games, have a snowball fight, play with building blocks, enter competitions and more.  You will have a range of Christmas craft activities to choose from and take home.

Once you are ready, an elf will take you into the grotto where you will meet Santa. He will talk to each of the children and read them a story before giving them all a present.

Each session is 40 minutes long, which roughly breaks down to 30 minutes in the workshop and 10 minutes with Santa.

£12 per child,  Adults free



“What an amazing and fun evening. I cannot recommend enough and at amazing price. Well done all.”

Larissa Walker

“We attended the very first grotto opening today and I can not put into words how incredable it was.   All the elves are supportive, funny and made he experience great.  Santa himself is incredable and my little girl was in full amazemen from start to finish.  Thank you so much – you are amazing at what you do.”

Why does Santa go down the chimney?

Because it soots him!
