Normal admission prices apply to enter the site on the day for all visitors. Please book your tickets online in advance and check the date and time of your booking as purchased tickets cannot be refunded.

Please arrive at the Ironworks at least 10 minutes before your allocated session; Santa Grotto timings are approximate and you may be required to wait for your booked session to start. This will help us ensure each child has enough time to discuss their Christmas list with Santa!
