Santa’s Grottos across North Wales 

Published on 2 Dec 2023 by Amy Greenwood

Visiting Father Christmas, or Sion Corn as we know him here in Wales, is one of the most eagerly anticipated activities in the run up to Christmas, when children experience the magic of season, share their wishlists with the jolly man himself, and receive a little pre Christmas gift. It’s a magical experience that creates lasting memories for all the family.
