Santa arrives in his grotto on FRIDAY 15th November 2013 at 5.30pm when there will be a free fireworks display (weather permitting) and will then be there every Saturday and Sunday until Christmas. Opening times: 11am - 4pm. (Please note that Santa has to go and feed his reindeer at approx. 1pm each day for half an hour!)
Cost: £6.50 per child including train ride through the animations and present from Santa, £1 for adults.
At Staunton Harold there is a massive Santa's Grotto set in its own wonderland. There is a train ride that takes you past wonderful animated scenes before reaching the magical man himself in his grotto. Every child will come away with a present (charges apply - see above) as well as a smile and an experience not to be forgotten.
Christmas has become one of the busiest times of the year at Staunton Harold Nurseries and Garden Centre. Over the last 20 years the Christmas area has grown considerably and we now have one of the largest and most spectacular Christmas displays in the Midlands. Angela Murray, the shop manager for over 20 years,is in charge of sourcing and displaying the decorations. In that time she has developed a keen eye for stylish decorations and those that are that little bit different. Many of our customers prefer traditional colours such as gold, silver and reds, but we also cater for those who like a more contemporary look with black or pastel colours.
A lot of time is spent by Angela and her team producing inspirational colour-themed displays, which can give customers many ideas to decorate their own homes at Christmas.
There is always a great selection of quality Christmas trees at Staunton Harold - Real Christmas trees will be available from late November.
