If you’ve been good this year then hurry down to Santa’s Grotto…

Santa and his elves will be ready to meet your little ones from Saturday 9th November until Monday 24th December, in a magical wonderland located on the Upper Ground floor next to Pret a Manger. For exact timings, please see below.

It costs just £5 to visit Santa and children will receive a free age-appropriate gift.  If you'd like to book, please click here*.  When booking online, you can also personalise your child’s visit by informing Santa if your little one should be on the good or the naughty list or anything you think Santa should know about!

Download the Cabot Circus PLUS app before you get to the grotto and your children will be able to join in with Santa’s reindeer food making workshop for free!
