Otley Garden Centre launches Grotto

The team at a garden centre in Otley is broadening its family appeal by introducing its popular Santa experience for the first time.

Otley Garden Centre, formerly Stephen H Smith’s, was acquired by Yorkshire Garden Centres in July last year and the team is looking forward to bringing its popular interactive grotto experience to the town.

“We’re excited to bring our interactive Santa experience to our new centre at Otley. We always sell out at Tong, with visitors saying how much they love our unique grotto concept with professional performers who take them on a magical journey” said Andy Bradley, Centre Manager.

“Storytelling as they go, the performers lead visitors through the festive forest as the Christmas elves share how Santa’s robins make sure all the letters are sorted in time to make wishes come true! Then it’s on to Santa’s grotto to meet Father Christmas and choose a gift from his toyshop.”

Santa’s Grotto at Otley opens on 25th November. Tickets go on sale on 30th August and cost £20.95 per child and free for up to two accompanying adults.

Otley Garden Centre is part of the Yorkshire Garden Centres family with Tong, Tingley and Bingley Garden Centres.
