It’s the most wonderful time of the year and Santa’s Grotto is officially open at Dobbies Garden Centre in Cirencester. Santa’s Grotto is open until Christmas Eve.

Families are invited to come along and explore the enchanting setting of Santa’s Workshop, meet Santa himself and receive a special present in time for Christmas Day.

As well as Santa’s Grotto, Dobbies has a number of festive experiences, including a special breakfast or tea with Santa and a Christmas Afternoon Tea.

For those who can’t wait until the big day to tuck into their turkey, Dobbies has also launched an exclusive Christmas menu in the restaurant, with everything from pigs in blankets and pork and sage stuffing, to Christmas pudding with brandy cream.

Tickets cost £11.99 and include a visit to Santa’s Grotto and a gift from one of the following brands: Lego, Playmobil, Bigjigs, WOW Toys, Ravens Burger, Baker Taylor or GALT.
