Make magical Christmas memories as you enjoy the Stunning Light installations, the Forest of Fire, Christmas Train, Reindeer Trail and of course Santa’s Grotto. You’ll also be enthralled by our dazzling new attraction the Wonderland Wood, where a stroll through the twinkling trees will reveal magical delights and sights as the fairies have sprinkled their dust to create a captivating kingdom!

For this year’s event we have teamed up with The Cancer Fund for Children who will be running Santa’s Grotto. In high demand during the Christmas season, Santa will have the help of charity volunteers who will make sure any visit to the Grotto is extra special.  Donations from the Grotto will go to the charity and help raise valuable funds for this worthy cause.

Matthew Allen, Corporate fundraiser for Cancer Fund for Children commented: ‘We are delighted to be working in partnership with Antrim and Newtownabbey Borough Council on their Santa’s Grotto at the Enchanted Winter Garden. As the chosen charity for the Council last year, we know the hard work the Council do in creating fantastic events and fundraising. This year, Cancer Fund for Children will benefit from all proceeds from this year’s Santa’s Grotto, so I would encourage everyone to come down between 8 -18 December, visit Santa while also supporting a fantastic local charity.’

Be enthralled and amazed in our Enchanted Winter Garden, where a sprinkling of Christmas sparkle has transformed the Gardens into a winter wonderland full of delights for all the family.

The Enchanted Winter Garden runs from Thursday 8 until Sunday 18 December from 4-8pm daily and there is no admission charge.
