Chessington World of Adventures is giving a sneak peek into its 2020 Socially Distanced Father Christmas Grottos


Chessington World of Adventures Resort is the first UK Theme Park to give a sneak peek into its 2020 Father Christmas Grotto, this year complete with ‘elf’ and safety measures including the main man himself sporting a custom, festive face mask.

Leading the charge for others, Chessington’s first-look images show how Father Christmas will be keeping a ‘snow-cial’ distance and while wearing gloves, will also regularly clean his hands with hand ‘santa-tiser’ following the ‘Hands. Face. Space’ guidelines.

Chessington World of Adventures Resort, said: “With the current COVID-19 restrictions in England expected to end at the start of December, we are ho, ho, hoping to welcome guests to meet Father Christmas from Saturday December 5.

“While our Grotto has health and safety measures in place, we are confident our guests will still be able to feel that festive magic if we are able to reopen our gates in December.”

Tickets start from £20 to meet Father Christmas at Chessington’s Winter’s Tail event. Pre-booking is essential at
