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.

The grotto will be open on weekends throughout November and December, so get the kids ready to ask the most important question of them all...are they on the naughty or nice list?

Your child also has the opportunity to post a letter to Santa in our magical post box. Post your letter to Santa whilst on your visit, and in between making toys in his Lapland workshop, Santa will write back. 

Visits to see Santa are £5.00 per child. You must book in advance, we cannot accept walk-ins on the day as Santa needs to know how many presents to bring in his sleigh. Follow the steps below to book.
