He is really looking forward to meeting lots of children in his Christmas grotto and wishing them all a very Happy Christmas.

Entry to the grotto is free and you can drop-in on the dates and times above. The elves will make sure you can visit Santa as quickly as possible, however as Santa is always popular this time of year, there may be a wait.

Booking slots can accomodate two adults and up to four children.
