Christmas 2015 - Lights switch on & Santa's grotto

Santa will return to take up residence at his grotto in the Square this year.

Our Christmas lights switch on and Grotto opening will be on Saturday 7th November. Thereafter Santa’s grotto will be open every Friday, Saturday and Sunday in November.

In December Santa’s Grotto will open every day, apart from Mondays, from Tuesday 1st until Wednesday 23rd .  (The Grotto will be closed on Christmas Eve as Santa will be busy with his well-publicised international deliveries.)

Booking for the Grotto will be via a link on this website and will be going live just before the Grotto opens.  For priority booking make sure you’re signed up to the Duke of York Square newsletter – last year most of the slots were filled within 24 hours!

For notice of late booking opportunities please keep an eye on twitter.
