Here’s what you said last year:
“Had great time yesterday face paint etc Santa was lovely talked to kids for ages he was amazing and lovely pressies too happy kids x” Tanya Collins

“We had such a good time yesterday. All the staff are amazing and Santa’s grotto was fabulous.” Lucy Judkins 

“We came from a disappointing Santa’s Grotto locally* with very sad children, to Whilton Locks as our very first visit and the difference was incredible. So much attention to detail and clear care, love and time put into such a spectacular display, grotto and culminating into the most patient and pleasing Santa we have ever seen. Believe? We do now.” Mark Parsons

“Ava wanted to go back as soon as we got home. Everything about it is so magical!” Stephanie Stevens

“Myself and my 3 year old daughter had a very magical afternoon. Thank you so much.” Emma Louise Barnes

“THE BEST SANTA AND GROTTO EVER – simples!Claire Alcock

“Everything was magical – such brilliant Santa helpers too. Great value for money and well done to everyone involved, to ensure a super Santa Grotto experience. We’ll be back and friends and family informed of this great event, thank you.” Amanda Pearson

“We loved everything! From the penguins and reindeer, Santa’s workshop and elves to seeing Santa himself. Santa was superb thank you.” Helen Southworth 

“Great value.” Kate Green

We’ll add new reviews for 2019 when Santa has approved his Grotto and his first guests see him
* The other grotto was named so we have deleted the reference to save embarassment!


We offer more than one way to meet the man himself Father Christmas this festive time! Meet Santa in his Grotto, have Breakfast or Tea with him – or have an Exclusive Bookable Toddler Session or SEN session to meet him at the quietest of times for that extra special experience.
