Santa’s Grotto | Opens Saturday 21st November 2015

Longacres Bagshot Grotto Opening Times 2015

Santa’s elves and our talented team of seasonal staff have been working tirelessly to get the Christmas grotto ready for Santa’s big arrival on Saturday 21st November at Longacres Garden Centre, Bagshot.

Walk with your children on a magical journey through a Winter Wonderland before meeting the bearded man himself in the heart of his cosy Christmas grotto.

Each visit costs just £5 and includes a present from Santa if they’ve been good this year – an ideal incentive to get them on their best behaviour!

Santa Grotto and The Joy It Brings

We have Santa’s Grotto here at Longacres, which has been lovingly built by our talented team of florists and seasonal staff. It was a lot of hard work but all the staff involved in putting together this project agree that is it completely worth it to see the look on the children’s faces as they are lead through the winter wonderland and sat down in the grotto with Santa.

We have had some fantastic feedback both in person and on our Facebook page about the experience and how much people’s children have enjoyed meeting Santa. We’d like to say a big thank you, it makes all the work all worth while to know that it has been such a hit!

If you’d like to come and have a look for yourself we have posted the opening times below.
