Santa looks forward to welcoming you to his igloo to find out how good you have been this year, and to give you an early gift!

Useful things to know:


No strict time slots, arrive any time within your morning or afternoon slot and join the queue – there will be lots to see and do!

Tickets to see Santa must be purchased in advance as numbers are limited.

No charge for accompanying adults.
