Saffron Walden Santa's Grotto

SWBID are excited to announce that Santa and his Elves and Fairies are returning to Saffron Walden this Christmas.

Santa will be in his magical Grotto at the Garden Rooms in Jubilee Gardens (town centre) from Saturday, 3rd December, until Friday, 23rd December (inclusive).

His Grotto doors will be open on Tuesdays, Thursdays, Fridays & Saturdays - from 10 am until 5 pm and Sundays - from 10 am until 4 pm ❄️

We want a truly magical and memorable traditional Christmas experience for the whole family. You will walk along a real Christmas tree-lined pathway to Santa’s front door.  Spot the cheeky forest animals hiding in the trees.

Take a peek into Santa’s Elf & Fairy Workshop along the way. Knock at the door and get ready to meet Santa!

‘Early Tickets’ are between 3rd-16th December (inclusive) and cost £8.50 per child. From 17th-23rd December (inclusive), tickets are £10 per child. Tickets include a wrapped gift from Santa and a Wish Tree tag decorating activity.

Tickets are issued in half-hour booking slots (5 minutes per child with Santa). An adult must accompany children. Babies in arms attend for free. However, if a present is desired, then a ticket must be purchased at the time.

Booking is essential, and spaces are limited.

Saffron Santa’s Grotto is brought to you by the Saffron Walden Business Improvement District (BID) on behalf of the Saffron Walden town centre business community.
