  • Make your own all-natural reindeer food to take home for Christmas Eve
  • See Santa's Elves in their workshop and help them make it snow
  • Take a photo with The Ice Maiden in an alpine-themed selfie zone
  • Meet Father Christmas and receive a premium gift, photo and certificate
  • Personalise your gift from Santa at the Teddytastic workshops

Grotto tickets cost from £22.50 + booking fee, and include access to the full forty-minute Grotto Experience, all winter rides open on the park, and free parking in the Arlington Car Park.

More Details:

Relaxed sessions are specifically designed for those with sensory difficulties. The session will be as close to the general experience as possible, but will have reduced lighting and sound levels and smaller group numbers. It will also take place in the morning, before the other Grotto sessions, to allow visitors to move around Dreamland in a calmer environment with fewer visitors.

These changes aim to reduce sensory overload and make the experience accessible to all. In all other ways, the experience will remain the same. Please note that the Grotto is wheelchair accessible for any of the sessions, including this relaxed session. Any visitor who feels this relaxed session would be beneficial to them is more than welcome to join.

Head to Winterland Margate to experience a magical Christmas world down by the sea.

On selected days in December, the park will be transformed into a winter wonderland, with lots of festive fun on offer.

Expect a winter market with festive food and drink, dazzling fairy light walks, yuletide crafts, free festive film screenings, Christmas trees, wreath making, classic Christmas songs in the Roller Disco, a giant climb-inside snowglobe, and more! A selection of rides will also be open.
