CHRISTMAS GROTTO'S AND EXPERIENCES

Father Christmas is going to be a very busy man this year as he arrives all across the County by boat, train and tank!  

Planning a trip to see the big man is very important to us parents as we search for a truly magical and memorable experience for our children.

Some of the grotto's and experiences listed have been recommended and reviewed by Dorset Mums so you can have a better idea of what to expect.

CHRISTMAS AT MOORS VALLEY COUNTRY PARK

From Santa Specials to storytelling and stable animals – there are Christmas events for all to enjoy at Moors Valley Country Park this winter, as well as quality British Christmas trees to add that seasonal magic to your home. 

SOFT PLAYS AND PLAY CAFES

From small soft plays perfect for little one's to larger soft plays providing hours of entertainment, you'll find it all in Dorset.

For a full list of venues please see here.

TODDLER GROUPS AND PRE SCHOOL CLUBS/CLASSES

If you have a young child then visiting a local toddler group can give you the chance to meet and chat with other parents while the little one's play.

For pre school classes in baby sensory, music and movement, sport, crafts, swimming and more please see here.
