It’s already getting to the time of year when trips to Santa are popping up everywhere. If you’re likeLisa 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
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 a seasonal day on Sunday 16th December where there will be crafts, a brass band, songs and a visit from Santa.
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 Saturday 24th November and Thursday 20th 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.
Treetops Play Area in Golborne
They have several events this Christmas. These include breakfast with Santa, Santa’s Tea and Santa’s Sunday Special Party. Set to be lovely events for the little ones, Santa will join with gifts for all the children be there for pictures, and even give us a wiggle to baby shark. Again head to their facebook page
