What could make Christmas more magical than an encounter with Santa himself?

Since 1998, Great Grottos have managed Christmas Grottos in over 200 top UK retail outlets, with a huge amount of experience and knowledge providing children and adults with magical experiences.

Great Grotto’s cheeky elves will greet you with a smile upon arrival and when ready, invite you to walk through into Santa’s chamber. Once here you can say Hello to Santa and tell him what you would like for Christmas. There will be sacks full of presents and if you are on his good list there will be a special gift waiting for you along with a free exclusive, Van Hage Christmas Badge 2017.

Great Grotto’s will be offering a professional photography service allowing you to take away some great mementos of your visit. Prices start from £6.50 and delights can include photo baubles, photo Snow globes, key rings and tree ornaments.

Disappointing Present
Whilst Santa was great with my children, as was the elf who greeted us just before we met Santa (after rather a long wait), the present given to my son who is 3 is clearly marked suitable for children aged 4+. Both the elf and Santa asked his age so there was really no excuse. Only noticed once we got home and to far to go back and ask for something else. Be sure to check the suitability of your presents before leaving.
Good Santa, terrible presents
Lovely setting, friendly elves and a pretty good Santa (although you only get 5 mins). However my 2.5 year old was given a baby toy (big plastic keys). When I queried the toy I was told that they struggled with toys for 2-3 year olds. My 3.5 year old was given 2 cars which look ok but broke on the first use (and he was being gentle with them). Both boys were so disappointed and now think Santa is rubbish. Not worth the money.
