Unfortunately the Grotto is ticket entry only and customers arriving on the day without a ticket will be turned away. Please note, there may also be a 20-40 minute wait for ticket holders on the day. With Christmas looming as we fall into the Autumn/Winter season, Brookside Garden Centre is proud to announce the return of our multi-award winning Christmas grotto. As part of our continued support to good causes, this year we will be supporting local charities and great causes.Opening November 2017, and loved by children and adults alike, take a magical walk through winding paths full of bright twinkle lights and hidden surprises, leading you to meet Santa in his Finnish hut in the Magical Forest.Once you and your children have had the pleasure of meeting Santa (and making sure you're on his Nice List), take a look round our Christmas Shop. Browse through a wide selection of gift ideas, pick from 100s of Christmas decorations, trees and lights, and make sure to stop and see our award-winning Christmas display.Last year we were awarded 'The Greatest Small Garden Centre Christmas Grotto', and are dedicated to continue this experience for you as you celebrate the festivities this year. So please come along and visit Brookside's Christmas Grotto. Please take care when selecting your booking date, time, and guests, as it is your responsibility to check your tickets. Mistakes cannot be rectified and once booked tickets are non-transferable.
