Santa’s Grotto

Event Date: 04/12/21 - 23/12/21

Santa Claus is coming to town... Visit him in his snuggly Grotto at Eureka! this Christmas.

Father Christmas is heading to Eureka! this December, his *ski-doo laden with gifts a-plenty, and he wants to meet YOU!
*the sleigh’s in for an MOT

Come along to see the big man himself and an elf helper or two, for a discussion about how naughty/nice you’ve been this year, pressie requests, snap a festive (s)elfie and receive a gift! All in the comfort of the snuggliest grotto in town (as decided by us). Santa will be wearing a facemask, and we ask adult grotto visitors to wear masks too please, unless exempt of course.

You can visit Santa’s Grotto for £5 per child, which includes a gift.

Buy your Grotto ticket at the tills when you get here.

Please note: Grotto price is in addition to standard admission. 


Accessible Grotto

We’re running our accessible grotto for ALL sessions this year. Our staff are fully trained, so just let us know any additional needs. The museum is usually quietest during the first hour of opening, so we recommend getting here early if possible.

  • We’ll fast-track your grotto admission
  • Adjust the grotto space: adjust lighting, turn off music etc
  • Santa can even remove his beard if needed! (Depending on Government advice on mask-wearing).

If you require an Accessible Grotto visit, just let us know at the tills when you arrive.
