Three Places in Chester to See Santa Before Christmas

Families enjoying the festive season around Chester who are looking for a chance to meet Santa Claus will find a wide range of opportunities to consider.

Today, we’ll look at three that offer a chance to see the man from the North Pole in person right up to the night before Christmas.

Santa’s Grotto at the Ice Cream Farm

Nestled in the stunning Cheshire countryside and not far from Chester, The Ice Cream Farm has its own magical grotto. Here, children can not only meet Santa Claus but select their own present from the Elves Emporium, make reindeer food to leave out for Dasher and Dancer on Christmas Eve, and enjoy some delicious ice cream in a special mug for the season they can take home.

Christmas Play Party at Zippy’s Playworld

Ideal for indoor play, Chester’s Zippy’s Playworld provides experiences that are clean, soft, safe, and fun, with activities suited to a range of ages from babies to primary school children. Christmas Eve will see the venue hosts a special festive play party and early arrivals will get a chance to see Santa inside his grotto, and enjoy a special gift.

Have a bite with Santa at Chester Cathedral

Finally, what better way to celebrate Christmas than by enjoying a brunch with Santa Claus? Brunches are taking place throughout December, including Christmas Eve, in the Chester Cathedral refectory with sittings at both 9:00 am and 11:15 am.

Make sure you don’t miss your chance to see Santa Claus in Chester before the big day!
