This year, schools will once more be able to book to visit Santa at Cardiff Castle. He will be moving from his Grotto into one of the Castles’ show rooms and this is a new event for schools.
Schools will be able to visit the Castle, which will be decorated for Christmas, and each pupil will receive a gift and an activity booklet to take home.
School visits to Santa will run on the following dates:
Dec 2nd - 4th
Dec 9th - 12th
Dec 16th - 19th
Self-guided Tour, Visit to Santa and Gift - £8.00 per pupil. Additional adults over the standard ratio - £6.00
Guided Tour, visit to Santa and Gift - £10.00 per pupil. Additional adults over the standard ratio - £9.00

Please note: This is not the Santa’s Grotto that we have previously offered.
Take a look at the inspiring trailer for a Cardiff Castle visit created by pupils at St John RC Primary School Cardiff.
If you are looking for ideas for follow-up work to a Castle visit, why not follow St John RC Primary School’s example and make your own trailer?
