Santa’s Grotto at Murton

5th December 2020 @ 10:30 am - 3:30 pm


Santa has decided that he best keep his distance throughout December this year. We don’t want him poorly for Christmas Eve!

Come along and visit Santa’s grotto at Murton. Although Santa will not be in his grotto when you visit, he will be making a special visit the night before, to drop off presents for your little ones to collect. His elves have also put a Christmas activity pack together for our visitor farm and nature reserve so that you can make the most of your day out at Murton.

We have a very special post box that will deliver letters to Santa. All letters with a name and address will receive a physical reply letter posted to them.

£5.50 per child. Booking essential.

Booking Information

Santas grotto will be a drop-in session within your time slot. You may arrive any time during your booked slot. Spaces within each time slot will be limited but you may have to wait in line as only one bubble will be able to enter the grotto at any time. Santa’s helpers will help children find their gift left by Santa.

A maximum of 6 adults (including 12+), from two households will be allowed into the grotto with the children to collect their gift.

We can only accept bookings from visitors who live in Angus while we remain under Tier 3 restrictions.
