Santa’s Grotto – dates throughout December

Santa's Grotto at Thorp Perrow

Count down the 12 days of Christmas on a stroll through the Arboretum, until you find yourself at the grotto, nestled deep in the woods. The elves welcome and guide you through the winter wonderland, where you’ll meet a host of wonderful creatures before arriving outside Santa’s log cabin home. Inside, you’ll meet the donkeys, take a sneak peek into the elves bedroom and look out onto the bustling ski village below.

Take the chance to draw a Christmas picture, or write and post a letter to Santa. When it’s your turn, he will invite you into his cosy living room for a chat, and the chance to have a photo. There is a gift for every child, too.

Santa’s Grotto costs £5.50 per child (standard entry charges apply)
