Christmas wouldn’t be complete without a family visit to Santa’s Grotto.

Our favourite fella in red will be sprinkling some festive sparkle in Times Square every weekend in December, as well as Monday 23 December.

Admission is £10.00 per child, which includes a gift, hot chocolate and a sweet treat!

Pre-booking online is recommended to avoid disappointment. Slots are available between 11.00am and 5.00pm. Simply select your preferred half-hour slot and your child will see Santa within that period for approximately five minutes.

Please note:

  • Santa will endeavour to keep to time, but he may over-run. (He’s on North Pole time!)
  • A limited number of unreserved slots may be available on the day.
  • Science centre and skating admission is not included in the meet Santa price. Tickets for these activities can be purchased on the day of your visit from the science centre reception.
