Public Skating Timetable during Santa’s Grotto coming soon

  • 9 - 24 December
  • 10am - 4.15pm
  • Santa's Grotto from £18 (includes a meet with Santa, a gift, a skating pass and a drinks token)

Please choose the day you wish to visit Santa – after selecting a time slot, choose the number of tickets. Santa’s Grotto bookings only need to be made for the children attending* and they will receive their skating pass, gift and drinks token on arrival at the venue. Accompanying adults visit the Grotto for free but will need to book skating tickets (unless your child is aged 5 and under and then you get one free pass for an adult instead).

* Babies in arms, under the age of 12 months, do not require a ticket when accompanied by a paying sibling. Babies under 12 months without a paying sibling will require a junior ticket. Due to the nature of the gifts, babies will not be allocated a gift.
