Father Christmas' Grotto

Santas Grotto Children

Father Christmas' grotto is one of the most exciting, festive experiences at Dobbies. Treat your little ones to a truly wonderful experience where they can explore the enchanted woodland, find out all about the magical hare and of course, meet Father Christmas himself.  

Make your way to the grotto where you'll be greeted by Father Christmas' friendly elf. Our helpful elf will then give your child a certificate to complete as you make your way through the enchanted woodland together. Explore the Christmas story together by reading the tales of joy, peace, hope and love. Your little one can collect a special sticker as they finish each book to complete their certificate before they meet Father Christmas.  

You'll then be welcomed into Father Christmas' grotto by the friendly elf, where your child can enjoy a one-on-one experience with Father Christmas. Adults are welcome to accompany their children into the grotto to enjoy this special moment together - you're welcome to take photos to make a lasting memory. Father Christmas will then give your child a special gift (you can even select the preferred brand of toy at time of booking) that is sure to put a smile on your little one's face. 

Families visit Father Christmas' grotto at Dobbies year after year due to the memorable experiences their children have enjoyed. Make sure you don't miss out by booking your grotto experience now.
