Our magical Christmas Grotto returns to the RAF Museum. Get into the festive spirit and bring the whole family to meet Father Christmas!

This year Father Christmas will be nice and cosied-up next to the fireplace inside the Claude Grahame-White Office in Hangar 2. We are very lucky that he’s able to spare the time before he gets too busy for Christmas. Every child will have the chance to meet Father Christmas in his special Wartime era grotto. So book your tickets now! 

There will be a special Christmas gift for each child to take home and a chance to take photographs with Mr Clause at no additional charge. 

You can also purchase a combo ticket to get entry to the Grotto and access to the Letters Home Trail for only £9.00. For more information about our seasonal trail click here.
