Visit Father Christmas

Stop by a Father Christmas grotto near you to share your festive wishes in the historic surroundings of the places we care for. Fancy a Father Christmas experience with a difference? Solve the trail at Biddulph Grange in Staffordshire to find Father Christmas in his cottage, or settle down for a special storytelling session with the man himself at Quarry Bank in Cheshire. Help spread festive cheer to others with a trip to the reverse grotto at Erddig in Wrexham, where you leave a gift with Father Christmas for the local foodbank instead.
