Christmas is coming

This week the Museum of Somerset will start taking bookings for its popular Santa’s Grotto.

The Grotto will be open each Saturday in December between 10.30 am and 4.30 pm, and due to its popularity families are encouraged to book their time slot in advance.  The cost for each child is £4, which includes the visit to the big man himself as well as a quality wrapped gift.

Santa’s Grotto is decorated with trees and twinkly lights to create a magical and intimate setting.

Susie Simmons, Visitor Services Manager at The Museum of Somerset said, “All the staff and volunteers love welcoming Santa to the museum. It is definitely one of the highlights of the year.  The grotto gets more magical each year, and the setting in the museum courtyard is perfect.  We are pleased to be able to offer somewhere in the heart of Taunton for families to meet Santa.”

To book a time slot families can either visit the museum or call 01823 255088.
