Santa’s Grotto, Mrs Claus’ Bakery & Elves’ Workshop

Santa’s Grotto and Elves’ Workshop

Come and visit Santa’s magical grotto with an elves’ workshop experience.

Winding your way through the magical maze, you’ll follow the elves all the way to Santa who will be waiting for you in his grotto.

After having a lovely warm chat with Santa, he will give each child a golden ticket granting them entry into the elves’ toy workshop next door. Here children can play with the elves and help to make toys before swapping the golden ticket for a toy of their choice. There will be a craft activity to take part in and the opportunity to buy professional photos if you wish.

Then in the market square, children will be able to enter the gingerbread house and dress up and take #elfies in the mirror.

Santa’s grotto slots are pre-booked in 5 minute time slots and you can book a maximum of four children and two adults in each slot with Santa. The elves workshop afterwards is shared with other children who have also just met Santa. The whole experience lasts approximately 20 mins.

Online booking will be opening soon for the Santa’s grotto and elves’ workshop experience to guarantee your child’s place.

The Santa’s grotto ticket also includes a child’s free entry into Tilgate Nature Centre, which can be used anytime up until the end of January 2020.

Mrs Claus’ Bakery and Elves’ Workshop

Mrs Claus also has her very own grotto right here at Tilgate Park’s Magical Christmas.

Entering the same magical maze as those visiting Santa, you’ll follow a different path where the elves will take you to see Mrs Claus in her bakery. Everyone can come along and queue without appointment to see Mrs Claus who will talk with the children about Christmas and what the Claus family is up to. Each child will receive a ticket granting them entry into the elves workshop next door.

Here children can play with the elves and help to make toys before swapping their ticket from Mrs Claus for a toy of their choice. There will be a craft activity to take part in and the opportunity to buy professional photos if you wish.

Then in the market square, children will be able to enter the gingerbread house and dress up and take #elfies in the mirror.
