It’s festive season!
This means you will most likely take your children to meet Santa this winter in one of his grottoes.
Though this winter save your time on searching for him, we have a map ready for you.
There are seventy-five Santa Grottoes in London this winter, of which four are within the Kensington and Chelsea borough.
The first one is the unmissable grotto in the Hyde Park Winter Wonderland. Enjoy with your children the festive Christmas market with delicious foods and beverages, as well many rides and incredible lights. As a bonus, it’s a free event!
The online Babyccino world organises another grotto in the Chelsea Old Town Hall, where you will be able to enjoy drinks and nibbles, do some shopping with some sweet discounts and of course meet and take pictures with Father Christmas.
The third Santa Grotto will be held at the Duke of York Square in Chelsea. Appreciate the gorgeous lights, but don’t forget to book for your visit. Santa is very demanded there!
If you want to immerse your little ones completely into the spirit of Santa, take a look at Santa’s Grotto at the Royal Albert Hall. Your children will embark into an interactive journey through snowy scenes and meet enchanting characters including the Snow Queen. Father Christmas will be waiting at the end of this magical journey on his sleigh, where he will distribute presents and take pictures.
To find more grottoes in other areas, consult the following map. It compiles all the information you need to be fully prepared: opening times, dates, whether booking is needed, fees and a link to the website.
Note, only Santa’s Grottoes accessible to the general public have been included. Schools’ grottoes, as well as any privately-organized grottoes, will not figure on this map.
Enjoy the festive fun around London!
