Book your ticket to meet Santa at his magical grotto, in association with Playmobil, this November and December at intu Watford.
This year, intu Watford's grotto has moved! You can find their magical discovery lodge in the gallery space above Next. Simply take the escalator from the Upper Mall up to the lodge where you’ll be greeted by a friendly elf to send you on your magical journey before meeting Santa. There’s lots to discover including a story teller to get you in the Christmas mood and a letter writing station where you can pen that all-important list before posting it to Mr Claus.
At the end of your journey you’ll enter Santa’s grotto where it’ll be almost time to meet the man himself. But before that, we’ll need to see if you’ve been naughty or nice this year! One of Santa’s elves will be on hand to test you on our ‘naughty or nice-o-meter’ (but don’t worry, it’s usually only mums and dads who land on naughty!).
The time has come – you can now finally meet Santa! Don’t forget to let him know what you’ve written on your list – he has lots to remember this year. Once you’ve had a good old chat with Mr.Claus he will give you an exciting early Christmas gift. This year, all of Santa’s gifts are from Playmobil*
