Make a date with Santa this Christmas!

Santa's GrottoThis Christmas why not bring the kids to Greenhead Park to visit Santa and his elves – and support local charities too!
Santa’s Grotto will be officially opened by the Lord Mayor on Saturday 4 December at 11am. You can book a slot to visit the grotto by calling in at the cafe (opposite the tennis courts) or e-mailing
Please note that all openings are weather permitting and payment is by cash only.
The Cafe in the Park will be open throughout the festive season apart from Christmas Eve and Christmas Day.
The Park cafe by the conservatory will open as usual until Thursday 23 December. Opening hours on Christmas Eve are 9am to 1pm and the cafe will then be closed until Saturday 8 January 2022.
Go to Park information for all the details about facilities in the park, including more info on both cafes.
