Once your little ’uns have written letters to Santa and watched myriad films about the present-wielding gent, the next step in the Father Christmas trajectory will be to see the big man IRL. Luckily, Santa will be very busy this Christmas flitting from London Zoo to Winter Wonderland to Kew and all over London, ho-ho-hoing and dishing out gifts to the capital’s over-excited children.

But, don’t get caught short. There’s only so much Santa to go around so it’s more important than ever to book your kids a slot with ol’ Saint Nick in advance to avoid tears and tantrums. Take a look at our guide to 2022’s Santa’s grottos in London and make a date with the legendary dude in red.
