Santa’s Grotto

26th Nov 2022 - 24th Dec 2022

There’s extra sparkle at our magical Christmas Grotto this year. 

We have got your passport here ready and waiting to whisk you off on our 40-minute festive tour of all our jolly activities – which are all included in your ticket price! 

One of our charming Elfs will warmly welcome you into our winter wonderland Grotto and guide you around as a family. Once you have experienced all our activity stops, it will then be time for you and your family to meet the man himself!

This is your chance to hand Santa your Christmas list and tell him what you would like for Christmas, then as an extra treat, Santa has said, any child that visits him here at Skylark can choose a Toy for FREE at Santa’s Toy Shop or you could decide to Make-a-Bear!



Gingerbread Decorating

First stop, Gingerbread Making.  Join a friendly Elf in the Kitchen and get decorating delicious ginger biscuits to take away and enjoy at home!

Reindeer Food Making

Next, don’t forget Prancer, Dancer, Comet, Cupid, Donner, Dasher, Vixen Blitzen, and Rudolph! Christmas eve is a very busy time for them and they will need a variety of ingredients to keep up their strength. Make your own bag of food for them ready to layout with a mince pie for Santa.


Nothing fills you with more festivity than a good Christmas sing along! Join the elves sing their favourite Christmas songs in our cinema area.


From November 27th and 28th then 4th, 5th, 11th & 12th December and 18th – 24th December
