Not long to go now… and if the kids want to visit Father Christmas you can pop down to see him in his grotto at Springfields Outlet right through until December 24.
Back for its sixth year, the traditionally themed grotto transports families to the North Pole with its sparkling lights, Christmas trees, snowmen, a log fire and even a post box for children to post any special messages to Santa before or after their visit. Children will have the opportunity to meet Santa Claus individually, and receive a special gift and Santa hat, compliments of Starlings Toy outlet.
Following a trip to meet Santa, you can take a wintry walk through Festival Gardens, which has been transformed into a sparkling after-dark trail in the run up to Christmas. It’s free to visit and has 25 acres of stunning landscaped gardens, specially illuminated with beautiful festive lights.
After filling-up on festive experiences at the Grotto and Festival Gardens, you can make the most of late-night shopping* and special offers at Springfields Outlet throughout December, and enjoy a meal or quick bite at restaurants including Frankie & Benny’s and The Noshery.
Gift-perfect brands include The Cosmetic Company Store, Joules, Crew Clothing Company, Starlings Toy Outlet, Radley, Jack Wills, Fat Face, White Stuff, Next, Gap, M&S, TM Lewin and Skechers – all of which offer up to 75 per cent off the RRP.
*Stores are open every weeknight to 9pm until Monday December 23.
Grotto Opening Hours:
Weekdays 3 pm to 6.30 pm
Saturdays 10 am to 5 pm
