Please note - to avoid overcrowding, and to allow space between people where possible we have made some changes from previous years -

All tickets will be sold at the Bottom Station. Anyone arriving at the Top Station will be able to ride down to the bottom, where they will be asked to join the queue for tickets.
Anyone accompanying a child will have to purchase a ticket to ride.
The grotto doors will remain open to allow fresh air to circulate, so little people may glimpse Santa as he speaks to the children in front.
If you wish to take a photo of your child standing with Santa, please be prepared.
On exiting the grotto you will be directed back to the platform to board the return tram back to the Bottom Station.

The woodland pathway is not suitable for wheelchairs or larger pushchairs. These can however be left at either station
