There will be hot and cold refreshments served all afternoon.
For the visit to the grotto and a present from Santa along with the opportunity to have your child’s photo** taken the cost per child is just £1! There is no charge for accompanying adults. Admission to the Children’s Centre is free so come along and enjoy the festive atmosphere and partake in a mince pie or two!
Here are some questions and answers that we get asked, you may find some of your questions are answered here too:
Can I book a time to see Father Christmas?
No. We do not operate a booking system as Father Christmas visits are special to each family, therefore we don’t wish to impose timed slots.
Do I have to pay for my child who is under 12 months old?
No, entry is free, however the gifts may not be age appropriate for children under 1 year.
