Santa Claus is coming to town…

A trip to Santa's Grotto is on every child's Christmas wish list and makes for a wonderful start to the festive season. Meet Father Christmas and his elves in our magical grotto at Ayr Central, and receive a special gift from the man himself.

For one weekend only - Saturday 4th & Sunday 5th December - Santa is making a very special visit to Ayr Central, so get the kids ready to ask the most important question of them all...are they on the naughty or nice list?

Should you wish, children can post a letter to Santa in our special North Pole post box and Santa himself will write a reply letter to the children which they will receive in the post before Christmas Eve! 

Tickets must be booked in advance. Pre-book your tickets now for just £5.00 per child by selecting your preferred date and time below. 

If you are booking for more than one child, please ensure you select and book the correct quantity. 

Santa's elves look forward to welcoming you.
