Bookings Open for Santa’s Grotto

The annual Santa’s Grotto at Duke of York Square is returning for 2013.

Totally free of charge, children are invited to visit Santa  in his log cabin to enjoy an authentic festive experience.  Mr. Claus will be meeting little ones, telling stories, and giving away Christmas sweets to all who visit his cosy workshop. Visitors can make sure Santa remembers their wish list by posting letters in the magical Christmas post-box situated at Duke of York Square.  The elves will be snapping photos of each child with Father Christmas for the ultimate keepsake.

The Christmas Grotto will be open on weekends from 9th November and every day from 1st December until 24th December. Places are limited and advanced booking is recommended. Click here to book your slot with Santa Clause
