  • Visitor Information

Father Christmas and his Grotto come to Greenwich's glorious traditional riverside market this Christmas. Children get a chance to see Santa in person and collect their free goodie bag filled with lots of seasonal treats. Also on hand to keep the kids entertained is Santa's funny little helper, elf, who will dazzle the crowds with his magic tricks and balloon fun. Father Christmas arrives at his grotto at 11 Durnford Street next to Greenwich Market on Wednesday 21st November, just in time for the Lantern Parade and switching on of the lights at Greenwich Market. We advise that you plan your visit in advance as the Grotto is open at set times - on weekends in December and then every day in the week leading up to Christmas.
