Book your Grotto tickets online now

Online Booking is now open for Santa's Grotto at South Downs Nurseries and Santa's Enchanted Forest at Old Barn Garden Centre. These grotto experiences are operated by The Budding Foundation Charity and all money raised will be spent helping young people in Sussex. Last year, the charity raised more than £43,000 and this has been spent supporting wonderful projects in our local communities and in our schools.

Due to Covid-19, we are operating an advance booking system to see Santa at Paradise Park for the first time this year. This means that we will be able to keep you as safe as possible, with the added bonus of no longer having to wait in a very long queue to see Santa! 

Santa is located within the Paradise Park attractions. Live booking is now open – visit to book your tickets. 

Visit Santa in his Sweet Factory this Christmas at Paradise Park. Make your way through the magical factory and encounter elves making sweets before meeting Santa himself and receiving a special gift. Meet our animatronic teddy bears - NEW for 2020!

Tickets are limited so we strongly recommend you book in advance to avoid disappointment. Tickets include entry to the factory, 5 minutes with Santa and a gift. There will be some queuing to meet Santa within your allocated timeslot.

One ticket per person. Max group size of 6. All persons entering the grotto must hold a valid Day Park Pass or be an Annual Pass Holder. All profits will be donated to The Budding Foundation, a local children's charity based in Sussex. 

Due to Covid-related restrictions, we are unable to operate a grotto at Mayberry Garden Centre this year.
