Santa’s Grotto 2023

September 2023

Santa’s Grotto – Broadway Shopping Centre, Bexleyheath

Santa and his team of elves look forward to welcoming you to his Ice Castle Grotto this year. Your experience starts as soon as you join the queue. First, you’ll enter through our magically lit, giant Christmas tree tower and, once you have walked through, you’ll be greeted by an immersive, winter wonderland scene. A perfect opportunity for a selfie. You can even hop into Santa’s full size slay, this includes adults too. Once you have taken all your selfies, an elf will take you through to the throne room to meet Santa. Your little one will enjoy an individual chat and will receive an age appropriate present.

Professional photographs are taken inside the throne room with no obligation to purchase. You are free to take as many pictures as you like outside the throne room.

Walk-ins are available but we recommend pre-booking to avoid disappointment and extended queuing times.
