Visit Santa in his grotto
This Christmas, no visit to East Midlands Designer Outlet would be complete without seeing Santa and his elves in his magical grotto.
Follow the path through the snowy enchanted woodland, where you will finally come across Santa's cosy magical grotto and meet Father Christmas himself and his helpful elves - to collect a free special treat and photo for every child (Bookings not required)
Our grotto will be open from Saturday 1 December, right through to Christmas Eve.
Grotto Opening Times
Monday to Saturday 10.00am - 6.00pm
Sundays 10.30am - 4.30pm
Christmas Eve 9.00am - 4.00pm
Discover our Winter Woodland and take part in our trail to find all the animals and get a free chocolate treat...
Can you help us find all our Winter Woodland animals? Pick up a trail leaflet from Guest Services today and enter our woodland to find all the sneaky-hidden animals hiding. Once you have found all the animals, bring your trail leaflet back to Guest Services for your special treat.
