Santa's Grotto

27th November - 24th December


Watch your children’s faces light up as they visit Santa in his grotto and tell him all their Christmas wishes. Even Santa’s reindeer will be flying in to say hello, so be sure to pay them a visit as they rest up at Celtic Manor in preparation for the biggest night of the year. 

Not only does your experience include a chance to meet Santa - this year you can also join Mrs Claus in her kitchen! Every child visiting our Christmas Kingdom grotto will first join Mrs Claus to help decorate her gingerbread Christmas trees. Good boys and girls will be able to take their gingerbread home with them once they have finished!

We will have a dedicated area where children can write their letter to Santa and place it in his North Pole postbox, and of course once you have seen Santa, your experience is topped off by a visit to see his reindeer who are resting up at Celtic Manor ahead of their busy Christmas Eve!

Santa’s Grotto Gift

This year Santa has specially selected a bespoke, luxury soft toy as a gift to be given to all children. The gift will be embroidered with the ‘Christmas Kingdom at Celtic Manor’ logo, and ‘2014’, for a lasting memento of their visit.

Visits to Santa's Grotto experience sell out fast, so book early to avoid disappointment.
