Not only has Santa got his annual worldwide trip for everyone on his nice list, but he is visiting the UK for some exclusive appearances. It’s going to take a lot of Christmas magic to get him around the country, with a lot of same day appearances to attend. If you’re looking to bring your little ones along to meet Saint Nick, we’ve put together a list of where he’ll be and when.
Santa’s first stop on his Great British tour is down in West Sussex, at West Den Gardens. Appearing on the 16th and 17th December between 10am – 4.30pm (last admittance is at 4). Kids will get the chance to meet Father Christmas and get a little pre-Christmas present from him. There’s mince pies and mulled win for the grownups, and a chance to make ornaments and Christmas cards too!
Booking to see Santa is a must, as he’s a very busy man and everyone wants to see if they’re on the nice list! Child entry is £5 and Adult entry is £5.50.
Santa returns on the 16th – 17th in his temporary grotto at Sandcastle Waterpark. Enjoy a day of waterpark fun whilst you wait to see the big man himself! Tickets are £7.50 and can be purchased online. Click HERE to see winter opening times for the waterpark.
Appearing on the 16th,17th 21st and 22nd, Santa’s second stop is to the magical woods of Hornchurch, in Essex. He’ll be using some special Christmas magic to make his way between Essex and Sussex on the same day! Wrap up warm to visit Santa’s woodland grotto! You’ll receive a special Christmas present and a chance to have a photo with Father Christmas. Booking is essential, tickets are £7 per child.
Not only can little ones meet Santa, but they can enjoy a fun day out at ZSL London Zoo too. Santa will be in the centre of the zoo, along with all the other wonderful animals too. Santa will be using his festive magic again, as he’ll be in London again on the 17th right through to 24th, before he returns to the North Pole to get ready for his big Christmas delivery.
Money from the Santa experience goes to Zoological Society of London conservation charity, so it’s all for a good cause. Ticket prices can be found, HERE. Booking is essential.
Santa is arriving to LEGOLAND, in the form of bricks. Yes, the park has made a full-scale model of Santa and his sleigh. Whilst you won’t be able to meet Saint Nick, it’s a perfect time to grab a picture with this impressive LEGO model. The LEGO Santa will be at LEGOLAND until late December.
More information and tickets are available by clicking HERE.
Expect Santa to have some mini breaks throughout the day, whilst he visits other attraction on the same day! He’s a busy man but wants to see all the smiling faces – so please be patient! The elves will be there to keep you entertained.
