What's going on Events Santa's Grotto The elves have taken over If you missed out on visiting our Santa's Grotto at the Christmas Tree Festival don't worry, as Santa is making some extra visits to us this December, with his mischievous elves! Santa's Grotto will be open Sunday 16th, Saturday 22nd and Sunday 23rd December, 11am - 3pm. Price It's £4 per child, and the gifts are suitable for ages 1+. There's some craft activities to do, so if there's a bit of a wait you won't get bored! No need to book - just show up and buy your ticket at Reception, and they'll point you in the right direction. Parking charges also apply. Friends of the Forest get free parking all year round* at the Forest Centre - click here for more information. Don't forget that we are open over the Christmas and New Year period if you need somewhere to walk off the mince pies (or escape the in laws). Check out our full opening times here.
