Visit Santa's Grotto at Creswell Crags

Santa is joining us at Creswell Crags again this year! Join us in our crafting room, making your own take home crafts while you wait to see the big guy.


25th November 2023 - 17th December 2023 10:00 am - 4:00 pm

Weekends from 25 November

25-26 Nov

2-3 Dec

9-10 Dec

10-17 Dec

Simply book your timeslot, receive your waiting list number and get crafting. As soon as it's your turn, you'll hear us call!

Each family will get to visit Santa in his grotto when their number is called, and each child you have bought a ticket for will be given an age-appropriate Christmas present.

If you book your car parking in advance online then you will also be given a car parking permit from the reception team which is valid until 14th January so you can come back and park for free anytime you visit until that date.
