Santa's Grotto

Open to children of all ages; our grotto experience really brings the magic of Christmas to life and is renowned throughout mid Wales, south Wales and Herefordshire. Our new and improved grotto this year is packed with even more festive magic nestled within our bigger and better Christmas department.

Our Grotto experience kick starts with the excitements of seeing Santa's Reindeer and Donkeys. A great opportunity to take photos and view these amazing animals, within their specially built, secure pen, before heading to Santa's Grotto. Whilst you wait for Santa to invite you in enjoy the impressive and exciting Grotto entrance area. This time is well spent enjoying delicious sweets as excitement builds. Finally meet the man in the big red coat making the most of an engaging chat and receiving a suitable toy.

Our Grotto is different to so many with a personal experience and no hidden extras. Take as many photos as you would like to savour the magical, family experience your children will never forget!
