For a truly wonderful Christmas experience, why not bring your family along to Santa’s Grotto at Birches Valley. The Grotto is housed in a beautiful log cabin and set in the picturesque surroundings of Cannock Chase.
Santa's real reindeer can be found close by, grazing in their forest enclosure. All children who visit Santa will receive their very own real Christmas tree sapling to take home and plant, plus a small gift.
Santa's grand arrival
Santa's Grand Arrival will take place at 10.30am on Saturday 26th November when Santa will arrive pulled on his sleigh by real reindeer. Timed tickets for the Grotto on the opening day will be available from 10am. The grotto will then be open for children to visit Santa.
£10 per child. (Adults have free entry to the Grotto with a paying child). Children under 1 year old with a paying sibling can go in for free as long as they don’t want a gift. This includes reindeer viewing, grotto experience, time with Santa, a tree sapling to grow at home and a gift. We welcome you to take your own photos with Santa.
On the opening day timed tickets for the Grotto will be available from 10am. There will be NO bookings or advance tickets at other times.

We reserve the right to close earlier than advertised due to demand. Please arrive early to avoid disappointment. The closer we get to Christmas the higher the demand. The Grotto is only open to school groups during the week.
