The grotto will feature the jolly man himself plus his head elves Sprinkle and Star who will be on hand to assist with gingerbread house decorating and to help navigate the secret trail that lies in the enchanted forest of the grounds. After a busy afternoon, children and the elves will sit down with a cup of hot chocolate as they listen to Father Christmas and his magical adventures before receiving a special gift.

Grotto slots are available from 10.00am – 5.00pm and tickets cost £18. (Adults free of charge)

Another sold out event at Salomons Estate, breakfast with Santa makes a return on Christmas Eve. As with the popular grotto, those wanting to visit can email reception@salomons-estate.com to have their names added to the waiting list.

The magical morning will consist of a visit from Father Christmas where parents and children can join him and enjoy a delicious, home cooked full English and continental breakfast buffet where Santa will be handing out a present to each child.
