We love this business – they go the extra mile for you EVERY time, not just the first visit. Very well run with a caring culture – superb customer care – WELL DONE.” Beverley Bates, Facebook.

Took our girls to see Santa in his grotto today and it was a great experience. The grotto was magically decorated, Santa a lovely sweet man who was great to the children and parents and Santa’s helpers outside were very sweet girls who completed the experience. Great present as well for the money. Well done Whilton Locks.” Michaella Sutton, Facebook.

“Really enjoyed our Afternoon Tea and so did our guests one of whom was celebrating her 88th birthday. There was a good choice of cakes and sandwiches.” Terence W, Groupon

More Reviews: “Just been to the Valentine’s day cuddle day and afternoon tea. What a fantastic afternoon and a great range of animal interactions. My son who is 5 absolutely loved it and held every animal and his sister who’s almost 2 joined in with quite a lot too.  Also the tea beforehand was delicious. Definitely look into this for my sons 6th birthday in September.” Emily Wright, Facebook

I love the sleigh area making more photo opportunities and happy children . “Santa” didn’t rush us and made it very special ! I loved the snowman bouncy castle and the ice rink what a lovely way to spend a family day out on a normally stressful run up to Christmas ! Allanah Swain, Facebook

Father Christmas has been in touch with us here @whiltonlocksgardenvillage
He has informed us, that although some of his elves have been furloughed, they are still working hard up at the North Pole to bring Christmas Joy this December!
So we have been very busy behind the scenes creating our Grotto for him!
It’s going to be a little different this year, to keep Father Christmas, his Elves - plus all their visitors - safe!
You can book to visit our Grotto here: https://whiltonlocksgardenvillage.com/product/santas-grotto/

Normally this weekend would be the first time our fabulous real ice, ice rink open would be open for you and your family, but we know there is nothing normal at the moment.

Our events are postponed until December 3rd. Ice skating, Santa’s Grotto, Tea with Elsa, Breakfast with Santa, Wreath Making, in fact all your favourites. Although we can’t wait, to start our Christmas schedule, we can wait to ensure everything is safe - and you can book your event NOW, to secure your places in December.

That said, our doors remain open this weekend for fabulous festive cheer and your essentials and we reckon that, at least, is worth a little dance!
