Info for Oct 2011 bookings for Xmas 2011 (nicest place to go to & cheap too!!!)

Information
All children booked to see Father Christmas receive a festive activity gift at the wishing tent and a gift from Father Christmas in the Grotto. Refreshments are available to purchase whilst you have a short wait to see Father Christmas and you can capture this festive family occasion on your camera.

This is a timed event and to ensure a comfortable walk through the landscape we advise you to arrive at the car park at least 30 minutes BEFORE your booked time. Your timed slot commences at the wishing tent and the walk to the Grotto takes approximately 20 minutes. Tickets are valid for all day entry to the park. The route to Father Christmas on Grotto island is lit from dusk onwards. Please remember to wear outdoor clothing and suitable footwear.
