What makes a great grotto?

Lights, decorations, Santa (of course!) and a gift for the kids. In 2022 these are the very basic requirements for a great grotto and anyone whose job it is to set the stage knows that competition is rife. According to Hello magazine there are 14 stand out Christmas grottos in the UK this year 5 in first place Story Time With Father Christmas at the Royal Albert Hall. For something a little different, it mentions Noir Kringle 'The Black Santa's Grotto Experience' where Father Christmas and all of his elves are black; Set Sail with Santa Cruises - around Poole Harbour; and Dan yr Ogof Cave Experience in Swansea with twisting, turning cave passageways past underground lakes, waterfalls and colourful rock formations before meeting Santa in his underground grotto.

If you are tasked with creating a memorable Grotto for Christmas 2023 - be sure to visit Harrogate Christmas & Gift, which has everything you can possibly need, including ready wrapped grotto gifts.
