Top Places to Visit Santa in Wigan 2023

Lapland Santa and Reindeer

It’s already getting to the time of year when trips to Santa are popping up everywhere. You’ll want to get booked in early so you don’t miss out or like to get the festive season all planned out then you’ll want to get the dates booked in soon.

Here are some places you can see Santa in the Wigan area in 2023:

Santa at Bents Garden & Home 2023

We absolutely love this garden centre, especially at Christmas time where they really do go all out with their displays. There are several festive events going on, which includes breakfast and tea parties, events for toddlers and a lovely festive weekend where you will see real reindeer, enjoy fairground rides and get to meet Santa. Visit their website for all the details.

Santa at Haigh Woodland Park 2023

Haigh Woodland Park is one of the most popular areas to visit in Wigan with families and I’m sure they will go all out for Christmas. They have Santa’s Grotto open every weekend in December as well as Haigh Artisan Market where there will be crafts, a brass band, songs and a visit from Santa.

Visit Santa at The Wayfarer, Parbold 2023

The Wayfarer at Parbold have created Santa’s Camp because they felt like the world had forgotten what Christmas was all about. Santa Camp is the real story of Christmas. Their Nativity Trail lets children discover the wise men, shepherds and a star tell the story of Baby Jesus and the first St. Nicholas followed by a visit with Santa himself in his tipi.

Children (and their nearest and dearest) can make a day of visiting Santa in our Christmas Tipi with festive food and drink and Christmas markets.

They also have two days of low sensory Santa which is new for this year. You can book here.

Leigh Santa Parade 2023

Between the end of November and late December Santa and his team make their way round the Leigh area with the help of Wigan & Leigh Rotary Club. This is a really lovely event which I love watching every year – we take the children out in their PJ’s for them to wave at Santa as he drives past. Take a look at their facebook page for the pull list of dates and locations.
