santa grotto Isle of Wight

With Christmas approaching, Busy Bee Garden Centre is delighted to offer all our customers the chance to experience our Christmas Grotto, the perfect way to start the festive season.

To avoid disappointment it is advisable to book your Grotto experience online as we cannot guarantee that any spaces will be available to those customers who turn up in the garden centre without pre booking therefore you could be turned away .
Please note, there may also be a 10-20 minute wait for ticket holders on the day.

Due to the demand to see Santa, his Elves are only able to let each customer book one visit at a time online. When a time slot is added to your basket, you have 20 minutes to checkout before another lucky family have the chance to book it.
