Where you can see Santa in 2018
There are lots of magical and original places to see Father Christmas in Manchester, Cheshire, Liverpool, Wirral, Wrexham and Flintshire.
Whether you are looking for a free place to see Santa or a traditional Santa’s grotto with a gift to take home, we have some great suggestions for Santa’s grottoes near you.
Traditional grottoes with a gift
Keep it old school. There are lots of traditional Santa’s grottoes where you can pay to visit Father Christmas in his Grotto and receive a gift. Some also feature storytelling from Mother Christmas and Christmas crafts & activities with Santa’s little helpers, the Elves. Don’t forget to tell Santa what you want for Christmas!
Have a ride and see Santa
For a different experience why not take a steam train ride or a boat trip to See Santa? Taking a special trip to see Santa will build the excitement and leave a lasting happy memory. It might also give older, slightly reluctant, children the excuse to see Santa one more time.
Santa’s grottoes for animal lovers
Some Father Christmas grottoes have real reindeer – what a wonderful way to fire up your child’s imagination! Real animal lovers can even visit Santa on a farm where there will be a whole variety of animals to see and learn about.
Rather than going to see Father Christmas, why not dress as Santa and raise money for charity? Most towns now have a Santa Dash where even young children can dress as the big man himself and take part in a fun run in aid of a good cause. It’s a great way for all the family to start the Christmas season.
