Santa's Grotto

Meet the REAL Santa at Northenhay Gardens, Exeter in his giant grotto - And help out in the Elf Workshop!

Bring your letter to Santa to post in his special post box – make sure you stay on the Good List! Each visit includes a gift and you’ll be able to take your own photos with the Big Man himself.

Under new management, the grotto this year will also include an Elf Workshop.

Santa is a busy man in the lead up to Christmas so we recommend booking your visit early to avoid disappointment.

Tickets to see Santa are £13 per child (prebooked online) or £15 on the door, and includes a gift from Santa and plenty of time for you to take photos. PARENTS CAN ACCOMPANY YOUR CHILD FOR FREE.
