Santa's on his way...on a bus, carriage, classic car... and a fire engine

Leaving his sleigh behind until Christmas Eve, Santa plans to arrive at Squire’s centres next month on a vintage bus, a horse-drawn carriage, an American classic car – and even a fire engine.



His arrivals are scheduled for Saturday or Sunday mornings at each of the group’s 16 sites, where customers an have their pictures taken with him.


He will be opening Christmas Grottos (Circuses at Shepperton and Stanmore) and at Badshot Lea, Long Ditton, Shepperton, Stanmore, Woking and Washington will bring real reindeer with him.


A Squire’s Christmas Grotto visit plus gift costs £6 per child, with £1 donated to charity and is open until Christmas Eve, with no booking required. The ‘Make Rudolph Shine’ Circus costs £14 (advance booking required) and includes a gift from Santa’s elves.
