Santa's Grotto Experience

From 25th November to the 24th of December, sea explorers will be able to marvel at over 2,000 amazing creatures including jaw-some sharks, cheeky gentoo penguins and the UK’s first and only sea otters, Ozzy and Ola before entering our glittering grotto where Santa and his cheeky elves will be waiting in their magical winter wonderland to say hello and find out what’s on the top of those Christmas lists this year!

Every child who visits Santa in his grotto will be given a present to take home and enjoy!*

Tickets to see Santa is an additional charge, priced at £8.50pp and all guests must also hold a valid ticket to the attraction for the same day. Merlin Annual Passholders can add on the Santa experience for £6.50.

*All children require a ticket to see Santa, including under 3’s. Babies in arms (under 12 months) do not require a ticket if they are accompanying another paying child unless you would like them to have the full Santa experience with a gift.

Pre-book Now!

As always Santa will be very busy preparing for the big day so must head back to the North Pole to check on his elves and reindeer every evening. To ensure that he gets the chance to meet you all Grotto tickets must be pre-booked online prior to your visit.
