Meet Santa and get a present

Swansea Winter Wonderland at Gower Fresh Christmas Trees is the home of Santa on Gower. A visit to the farm wouldn’t be complete without a visit to Santa’s Grotto. The elves are waiting excitedly to welcome the children and take them to meet Santa. Why not make your experience complete and when you come to choose your tree also enter the snowy kingdom. Once inside your journey through the snowy land begins. You will see a family of polar bears relaxing in the snow, trees that spring into life and speak, elves busy making toys, Santa’s sleigh being loaded ready for Christmas Eve and you can even sit in it and feel the magic. At the end of your adventure and possibly a snow shower or two, you will meet Father Christmas and his reindeer and maybe if you have been on the ‘GOOD’ list, get a present.

Meet Santa

We have 5 chalets, where children can meet and greet Santa, talk to him and the elves and take a selfie with Santa.

Get a present from Santa

Children will get their presents from Santa himself. He is reading all the letters you send him so he knows what toy you want.

How to Book your Tickets to the GROTTO

ticket for the Grotto

We are very happy that thousands of people visit the farm every year to see Santa at his grotto. It gets really busy and very crowded, and in order to keep everything organised and give you the best possible experience we have set a system in place that will allow you to book your visit and choose a time slot that best suits you and your family.

You will choose your own time slot but it is not critical that you arrive exactly on time so please do not worry or rush to arrive as we would like you to have a stress free experience. Once inside the Grotto, please, relax and enjoy the magical journey and don’t hurry to the end to meet Santa. Your journey through the Winter Wonderland is taken at your own pace. On average families spend about 20 minutes taking in the sights, sounds and excitement in the GROTTO but there is much to see outside as well including baby lambs and piglets, reindeer and more.

Booking your tickets

You would need to purchase your tickets online, booking by telephone is not currently available. The Booking process is in few easy steps, few clicks and you are done. Select the date you want and the time slot that works best for you. Please, take your time to ensure that you have entered all your details correctly. Also, please, book early as weekends and the week leading up to Christmas Eve fill up very quickly.

Please, note, that children are only allowed in the Grotto if accompanied by at least one adult.
Children under 1 go for free in Winter Wonderland. For example, if your child is under 1 and you just want to go to Winter Wonderland but not go in the Grotto (to see Santa and get a present) you can do so without buying a ticket for the child. Children of any age who visit Santa in his Grotto need to have a ticket. Every child with a ticket, age 0-8 year old+ will receive a Christmas present from Santa. Please, be aware that the presents are suitable for children up to 8 year old.
Once you’ve booked your ticket, you will receive an e-mail with a confirmation for your purchase and a digital ticket with Ref. Number and a bar code. Make sure to bring the ticket with you, either printed or on your phone and show it at the gate to be scanned.
