Santa and his Reindeer at Birches Valley
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.
Santa's grand arrival
Santa's Grand Arrival will take place at 10.30am on Saturday 25th November when Santa will arrive pulled on his sleigh by real reindeer. The grotto will then be open for children to visit Santa from aprox 11am. Timed tickets for the Grotto on the opening day will be available from 10am.
£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 sapling. This includes reindeer viewing, grotto experience, time with Santa and a tree sapling to grow at home. We welcome you to take your own photos with Santa.
