Santa's Grotto

5 - 23 Dec 2020

Alexandra Palace East Court

Santa Claus is swapping the North Pole for North London as he sets up camp in our festive East Court on selected dates between 5 – 23 December (it’s a busy time of year for him!). Little ones are treated to a meeting with Santa, a small gift plus the opportunity to have their photo taken with Santa at his festive grotto.

New sessions have now been added every day from 16:00 – 18:00 and you can now visit Santa on Friday 11th and 18th December as well.
