Santa's Grotto at Burston Garden Centre
  • Burston Garden Centre,
    North Orbital Road,

We’re delighted to announce that our popular Santa’s grotto will be back at Burston Garden Centre from Saturday 28th November through to 24th December. We’ve been working hard with Santa this year to ensure that the experience is magical, but most importantly, safe. Click through to find out more about the measures we’ve put in place and how to book tickets.

Children will walk through Candy Cane lane and get the chance to spot our mini gingerbread men, create your elf name and take an elfie selfie. All of our activities this year will be non-contact to keep everyone safe. Each family group will then spend time with Santa, before the accompanying adult will choose a wrapped present from Santa’s sack! Our main restaurant will be serving festive food, so why not join us for breakfast, lunch or coffee & cake.

Please note that we will also be running our Additional Needs sessions.
