Santa’s Grotto is to open on selected dates during November and December up to and including Christmas Eve at the Pleasure Beach.

Youngsters can visit Santa, Miss Christmas Eve and Dominic the Elf Extraordinaire in an enchanted winter wonderland full of magic and sparkling lights.

Visitors will also receive a special Grotto gift from Santa, go ice-skating in The Arena and enjoy a piping hot drink to escape the chills outside.
