Where to see Santa in Peterborough 2017

I can not believe how quick this year has gone! Seems like 2 minutes since I was last writing this guide for 2016. I would love to know if you visitied Santa last year? and Where did you go?

Where is Santa?

Santa’s Grotto @ Peterborough One Retail Park (prev Peterborough Garden Park)

From the 23rd November onwards you can come and visit Santa in his Grotto. Times and Prices TBC

Santa Express @ Nene Valley Railway

25th November to 24th December – Your Santa experience starts with a welcome from our station staff and badge team – entertainment is provided on busy weekends. This is followed by an exciting visit to Santa’s log cabin where each child receives a special present from the old gentleman himself. Following a short wait families then join our steam hauled, decorated train for a 50-minute ride to Peterborough and return. During the journey, our train staff serve the children with a drink and chocolates. Parents and other adults are not forgotten with a mince pie and either an alcoholic miniature, wine or a hot drink. Santa walks through the train to see the children, providing an opportunity to take photographs and to wish everyone the compliments of the season. – Book here

      We have been to a few and they all have their plus points. I love Baytree Winter Wonderland. a bit of a trek but there are lots of lights, a train ride and you get a Christmas tree with your gift.
