We are excited to announce a brand new, covid-safe Festive drive-thru Christmas attraction! Coming to Hull this Christmas from the 4th – 20th December 2020. The event will be a winter wonderland, featuring light displays, elves, Mrs Claus and even the big man himself, Santa Claus!

You will arrive at the Mercure Hull Grange Park Hotel, Grange Park Lane, Willerby, HU10 6EB where you will show your ticket through your car window which will be matched with your car registration number.

You will then enter our magical winter wonderland. First stop, the mesmerising light display…. you’ll then drive by the elves preparing for Christmas in their workshop, and Mrs. Claus helping sort through the wish lists in the mail room. Before arriving at Santa’s Grotto you will drive through a snow storm, make sure you watch out for our Frozen Snowman! Meet Santa from the safety of your car for a contactless experience, where you will be able to tell him what you want for Christmas… you may even come away with a present if you have been good this year!

It doesn’t stop there! After the experience you have the option to go immediately into the Mercure Hotel for a festive afternoon tea!

With live actors, magical sets, lights and even a festive afternoon tea, this will be a great experience for the whole family to enjoy before Christmas.
