Danson House Grotto

December 1 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm GMT


Santa and his Hospice Helpers cannot wait to see all the girls and boys in his stunning Danson House Library this December!

The Danson House Grotto will open from 10am 

Check out dates at our Greenwich Market Grotto too!

Advanced booking is essential!

Danson House Grotto – Danson Park, Danson Road, Bexleyheath DA6 8HL

Thanks to Danson House,  the Hospice will once again be running our Grotto and raising much needed income for our special care. By supporting the Grotto, you will be giving families, needing hospice care this Christmas, a special gift of time with their loved ones. You will be helping them to make beautiful memories that will last a lifetime. Thank you so much.

Your child’s visit will involve a personal meeting with Santa in his grand Grotto library, where they can tell him their Christmas wishes, receive a lovely gift and have an optional professional photo taken – see below for details.

The hospice Grottos are diverse and inclusive spaces which reflect the communities they serve. This means the Grotto team will be from all backgrounds and communities.

Advanced booking is essential so book your tickets now.

Important things to note:

  • Danson House is a Grade 1 listed building so pushchairs, prams and buggies and food or drink of any kind WILL NOT be permitted in the building
  • An unsupervised buggy park will be available in the Danson House grounds (items left at your own risk, we cannot accept responsibility for accidents, damage or loss). Failure to adhere to the above may result in no entry, with no refund
  • Please do not arrive too early! You will not be able to wait inside Danson House because there will be birth, death and wedding registrations taking place within the building so this will limit the number of people allowed in the House

AnyEvents (London) Ltd, a local photography company, will be taking optional, official, photos. Taking your own photos inside the Grotto is not permitted because 12.5% of all photography sales will be donated to the Hospice. Prices for optional photos will start from £9.90. There will be an opportunity for you to take your own lovely photo by the stunning Christmas Tree in the Foyer before entering the Grotto.

Please note:

  • Each booking allows 5 minutes per child to spend with Santa and includes one adult ticket
  • If you are booking for more than one child, try and book consecutive time slots
  • Additional adult tickets can be purchased at £3 each
  • Your Grotto booking is non- transferable and non-refundable
  • Once you’ve purchased your tickets, please keep an eye on your inbox for email updates!
  • Be aware of people offering Grotto tickets on social media – they are likely to be a scam. We strongly advise that you do not purchase tickets from anyone you do not know.
