Ackworth Garden Centre Christmas

Last year we were incredibly excited to review Ackworth Garden Centre’s Winter Wonderland, this year is set to be bigger and even better. Alongside the Santa’s Grotto, they are also running Breakfast with Santa events and Santa Paws so that your fur babies don’t miss out on the action!

We loved going to Ackworth’s Winter Wonderland. We like that it’s a small grotto, with an experienced Santa who returns year after year. £15 per child, no limit on the number of adults that can go in, photograph and 6×4″ print included I hate it when there are hidden extras that you can’t bear to leave without buying! Mini Mumbler was so pleased with her gift, much higher quality than I’ve experienced at other grottos, even Tiny Mumbler’s baby gift was age appropriate and good quality.  Heather Wakefield Mumbler.

Santa’s Grotto £15 per child

A reindeer hunt, walk through the Winter Wonderland Grotto, visit Santa and receive a quality gift. Last year we were very impressed by the quality of the gifts and the fact that you also get an instant photo print out of your child with Santa in a presentation card. You can also take your own photos. No extra charges for photographs.

Breakfast with Santa £13.50 per child (+Adult breakfast if eating)

Breakfast with Santa, including a choice of children’s breakfasts, and a gift from Santa. Adults can purchase a breakfast from the menu, including free tea/coffee and a mince pie.

Santa Paws £10 per pet

Bring your furry family members to visit Santa and receive a special gift! Get a free photo printed with a presentation card of your pet with Santa. No charge for owners.
