Santa's Village - Exhibition & Grotto

Come visit the socially distanced Santa’s Village Exhibition & Grotto!

Take a magical walk through Santa’s Village at Debden House, with the chance to see Santa or Mrs Claus in their Winter home.

Here at Debden House Centre, we have been working hard on bringing a safe and socially distanced Santa’s village & Grotto experience. We wish to welcome all families, for a much needed reprieve during this season.
