Christmas Fantasy : Cora and the Bloobious Bright

1st December 2017 - 24th December 2017


This year we have been busy creating exciting displays for our popular Christmas Grotto. Children see Father Christmas in his spectacular underground cavern, choose a present, then walk through the wonderful Christmas displays, which this year tells the curious tale of 'Cora and the Bloobious Bright'. A young girl goes on an incredible Christmas adventure set beneath the sea. As she swims along, she discovers unusual footprints, what strange creature do they belong to?

Cora and the Bloobious BrightIn a fun Christmas story children meet Cora and the Bloobious Bright, follow them on an exciting journey, to discover if they will finally enjoy a Happy Christmas Day. Half way through the Caves, in the largest cavern will be underground stalls selling gifts, decorations and stocking fillers, as well as an underground café, for a welcome hot chocolate, before continuing the story.

Booking is essential! There are late night openings on Fridays (last entry 7pm) to allow working parents to visit. It's a great Christmas underground adventure, for all ages.

Christmas Fantasy runs from the beginning of December through to early January inside the caves and is a must for children and adults alike!
