Santa’s Christmas Grotto

11 November @ 10:00 am 24 December @ 5:00 pm

What would Christmas be without a traditional visit to Santa’s Grotto to tell him what is on your “wish list”?

From elves packing gifts to Santa preparing for the big day, get ready to embrace the festive season with a visit to Santa’s Grotto at Dalton Park from Saturday 11th November to Sunday 24th December, located outside of Next Outlet.

Join us for a memorable experience with your little ones, where they will meet Santa to tell him all of their Christmas wishes and receive a special festive gift. To make their time even more magical, you can capture the moment with a photograph that can be cherished for years to come.
