Christmas Grotto

There's nothing better in winter than meeting Mother Christmas, Father Christmas and the elves at Ruxley Manor's Christmas Grotto to really kickstart that festive feeling!

Join us this Christmas for a magical 45 minute experience in a winter wonderland where you and your children can enjoy the wonder of Father Christmas' workshop and Grotto. Each session lasts for 45 minutes and includes two activities, one with Mother Christmas and one with elves, before meeting Father Christmas himself and receiving a gift and a photo opportunity.

Our Grotto is always in high demand so please ensure you have read the Booking Terms and Conditions and the Grotto FAQs before booking your tickets.
