Follies Santa Safari

Christmas at Hawkstone Park Follies 2023!

Join the elves on a magical exclusive 4×4 experience through the Follies to see Santa in his real hillside Grotto!

Arrive at Hawkstone Park Hotel and check in for your trip. After a warming festive drink you’ll be whisked off in one of our Land Rovers across the Park, under the Wishing Arch and up the steep hill to Santa’s spectacular network of caves.

Wander around the decorated, fairy-lit caverns and tunnels until you finally arrive at your destination – the magical grotto itself! Where every child is greeted by Santa and gets a gift.

Pre-booking is essential and spaces fill up quickly so book yours as soon as you can!

As we now have two vehicles that can accommodate 8 people you are free to join together with friends or family to fill the seats and share the costs. This is a great option for two families of 4 or for larger groups.

Tickets are per vehicle and numbers are limited. Each ticket will give you exclusive travel in an off-road vehicle that will either seat up to 6 or 8 people. You can fill your allocated seats with any combination of adults and children.

Plan your visit…

Arrive at Hawkstone Park Hotel at least 10 minutes before your timeslot. Check in and help yourself to a hot chocolate whilst you wait for your 4×4 vehicle to arrive.

A 10 minute journey in a 4×4 will take you to the magical hillside grotto where you will be greeted by an elf. You can walk through the Grotto at your leisure, before meeting the wonderful Santa Claus himself! A gift is included for every child. The Grotto experience lasts approx 30-40 minutes.

A 4×4 vehicle will then pick you up and return you to the hotel where you can have a snack or meal in the bar or restaurant or head off home.

"🏰✨ Dive into the heart of Shrewsbury's Castle Quarter – the epicenter of history and grandeur! 🏰 Home to four of the town's largest historic treasures – Shrewsbury Castle, Library, Prison, and Train Station. 

Did you know Shrewsbury Castle's foundations were laid in 1083 by the 1st Earl of Shrewsbury, Roger de Montgomery? 
Montgomery, a cousin of William the Conqueror, earned this castle and more as a thank-you for his aid during the Norman conquest.

From royal stronghold to a 16th-century transformation, Shrewsbury Castle has quite the story. Now, it stands majestically, housing the Shropshire Regimental Museum. 👑🏰 Ready to step into the pages of history?
