Santa checks in

It’s Advent Sunday and the countdown to Christmas is officially on!


There are just four days until our Winter Wonderland Grotto opens to visitors in the 11th century castle and Santa dropped by to check the progress and to make sure his elves have wrapped all the presents ready for distribution.

And he was also joined by the Mayor and Mayoress of Dudley, Councillor Mohammed Hanif and his wife, Zabeda Khanam, who wanted to personally hand over their Christmas list to the man in red and get a sneak peek at the castle’s festive transformation.

All visits to Santa need to be pre-booked 24 hours in advance and tickets are going fast!

The grotto opens December 1 until 24 and tickets can be purchased HERE or by calling 01384 215313.
