Santa’s Grotto

Christmas just wouldn't be Christmas without a visit to Santa... when he arrives at Santa Land in George Street.

Santa’s Grotto

About Santa’s Grotto

Christmas just wouldn't be Christmas without a visit to Santa... A chance for children to meet the man in red in person, and tell him their dearest wish. Come and hear a festive fairytale, sit on Father Christmas's knee, meet his helpers, and receive a wee gift.

After a good break this year, a refreshed Santa is back to welcome you to his grotto. With a bespoke Christmas Story for this "audience with"-style Grotto, each child will also have the opportunity to meet the man himself and recieve a small gift.

Sessions are for groups of up to 20 children and begin every 30 minutes. You must buy a ticket for a specific time slot, either online or in person, before entering the Grotto.

Please note this year Santa's Grotto can be found on George Street.

All children visiting Santa require a ticket, including babies. Each child can be accompanied by up to 2 adults. Babies under 2 may accompany an older child for free, but the baby will not receive a gift.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Santa’s Grotto are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
