First Santa’s grotto booking!

We may be in the middle of summer, but we’ve taken our first booking for Santa’s grotto!

Our Santa’s Winter Wonderland Grotto opens on December 1 and runs until Christmas Eve. 

DZG Marketing Manager, Andrea Hales, said: “We had a record breaking year last year, with more than 12,000 visitors calling on site to see Santa Claus in the run-up to Christmas.

“We’ve only just started to advertise this year’s festive event and are delighted we’re already starting to get enquires – with the first family booked in to see Santa on Christmas Eve.”

Tickets cost £10 for children over one, £4.50 for under ones (with gift) and £8 for adults (Maximum of two adults per booking, additional adults will be £11 each)

A family ticket, for two adults and two children is priced £32.

Tickets, which must be pre-booked at least 24-hours in advance, include zoo admission, a visit to Santa in his castle grotto and a gift for children.

Call 01384 215313 to book your visit. 

And don’t forget to visit Santa’s reindeer in the 11th century castle courtyard, including little Sunflower – pictured below – who was born last month, out of season and on the hottest day of the year so far, as this will be her first meeting with the man in red!!
