The Christmas Grotto

Step away from the hustle and bustle of the high street grotto, and discover Penshurst Place's family-led traditional festive experience.

Walk along the Lime Walk and observe giant decorations that will lead you along the path way. Step into Father Christmas's Toy Workshop and make some wonderful festive crafts to take home, before getting your face painted. Leave the workshop and head towards Father Christmas' study, and see toy prototypes, design plans and the naughty and nice lists! Make your way down from the study and discover Father Christmas' secret Penshurst office, in a location never before seen by visitors to Penshurst Place! Here, the man himself will welcome you with a gift and a delicious candy cane, before regaling tales of his plans for Christmas and learning a little more about you! 

Event bookings will open on the 10th September
