Visit Santa in his magical grotto

Now Open

This Christmas, no visit to East Midlands Designer Outlet would be complete without seeing Santa and his elves in his magical grotto.

Santa is coming to town

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.

Our grotto will be open everyday in 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


Please note : Bookings are not required to meet Santa. Also during busy periods, we might have to close the grotto queue off an hour before closures to ensure the full queue is seen. Thank you for your understanding.
