Things To Do In Weston-super-Mare at Christmas

Santas Grotto at The Grand Pier

Come and see Santa in his magical grotto at the end of the Grand Pier this Christmas!  Santa and his helpers will be landing in their winter wonderland on Saturday 2nd December!

They will stay there until Christmas Eve, when they must leave to make sure all the Christmas presents are delivered on time!

Follow the snowy footprints as you enter the Grand Pier, to guide you to the winter wonderland, with its moving penguins and polar bears. You will be transported down an enchanted path to Santa’s very own grotto.  Santa’s reindeer and his elves will be on hand to make sure you don’t get lost!

Santa’s grotto will be open from 11am on selected dates and admission is £5.00 with each child receiving a wrapped gift.

Please Note: Santa’s Grotto will be closed between 1.30pm and 2.30pm on Sunday 17th December for Supper with Santa
