Come and see Father Christmas or Mrs Christmas in our Victorian grotto at the Ironworks this Christmas - and make unique memories for the whole family! 

English and Welsh sessions available:
English sessions: 3, 4, 17 December
Bilingual sessions: 18 December

Father Christmas on 3, 4, 18 December
Mrs Christmas on 17 December

Booking required for the grotto. Tickets must be booked in advance - in person at the site or by telephoning Blaenavon Ironworks on 01495 792615. The site is open Friday, Saturday and Sunday 10am-4pm.
Or by emailing

Please arrive at the Ironworks at least 10 minutes before your allocated session; Santa Grotto timings are approximate and you may be required to wait for your booked session to start. This will help us ensure each child has enough time to discuss their Christmas list with Santa!

N.B. 3, 4, 17, 18 December - site closed except for visitors to the grotto

Please note:

Blaenavon Ironworks will be open exclusively only for Santa Grotto visitors on the Santa Grotto event dates, and all tickets must be booked in advance.
