Top Places to Visit Santa in Wigan this Christmas 2021

It’s already getting to the time of year when trips to Santa are popping up everywhere. If you’re like Lisa of Hollybobbs Blog 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 this Christmas:

Bents Garden & Home

AD | I have been or could be if you click on a link in this post compensated via a cash payment, gift or something else of value for writing this post. See our full disclosure policy and privacy policy for more details.

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.

Haigh Woodland Park

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. This year it will be held on Sunday 15th December 2019.

Grange Farm

Just off the A580, Grange Farm have really invested recently and put on lots of activities for children over Christmas. Every weekend of December they will have a Santa’s Grotto where not only can you meet Santa but several of his animals too and he will even read you a story. As well as that they have crafts, write a letter to Santa which you will then hand over to him and even choose your own Christmas tree. More details are on their facebook page.

Leigh Santa Parade

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.
