The Best Places To Visit Santa In Dorset

As we approach my eight Christmas as a parent (What!). My thoughts have turned to where I will be taking the little tribe to see Santa this year. It’s a tradition so many of us do but one that can be hit and miss. Like most the main tick points for me are; value for money and a  fun, magical experience for the kids. We’ve been to some terrible Santa’s Grottos and some amazing ones so here is my guide to the best places to visit Santa in Dorset.

Best places to Visit Santa in Dorset

  1. Breakfast with Santa at Wyevale Garden Centre. 
    Great for the family as you all get a delicious breakfast too! The kids will feel at ease as Santa comes round and gets to know them all individually before going into the grotto and choosing a toy.
  2. Sail with Santa with City Cruises.
    Parents can enjoy a glass of mulled wine while listening to Christmas carols. Kids will be able to enjoy a minute magic show. Santa will be walking around the boat, meeting all children. Each child will receive a Christmas present directly from Santa.
  3. Monkey World
    A fairy lit buggy ride to visit Santa in his grotto! Mulled wine, mince pies, and a gift for each child fantastic for the whole family. Very reasonably priced and I really like that they have a single parent family ticket option.

  4. Stewarts Garden Centre
    For a more traditional Santa experience Stewarts is the one. Visit Santa in his winter wonderland and get to see the real reindeer!
  5. Swanage Railway
    Visit Santa on his special steam train along the Swanage railway! The one-hour return journey also includes festive children’s entertainment in each carriage. A really lovely idea.

Now the problem is just which one will you choose! Of corset there are a ton more but for me these re just a little bit more special and a little bit more fun for the whole family.
