Grotto Reopens

Welcome to our brand new website and to the news that the Grotto is reopening after four long months of closure.


We'll be opening the doors on Friday 24 July and, as you would expect, we have new measures in place. All the information is on our FAQ Page - check it out if you're thinking of visiting us. The main headline is that you will need to pre-book your tickets even if you're a Friend, but there are other changes too (like our not being able to look after luggage, not allowing any dogs, etc).


Please bear with us while we adapt to a new way of working and welcoming you.


And we hope you like our new website, designed by our lovely friend Nicky. We'll be launching our online shop just as soon as we've got reopening under our belts!
