This Grotto is no ordinary grotto, but a spellbinding Snowflake Factory as it will magically transport you from the Snow Factory to the North Pole. Children will create their own snowflake and explore the various activities within the factory. The visit lasts approximately 20-25 minutes, and photos can be purchased in the Christmas Shop at the end. Tickets can be purchased now on and the 2018 Christmas Grotto will be welcoming visitors from Thursday 22 November until Christmas Eve, Monday 24 December at £7.50 per adult/child.

At Santa’s Snowflake Grotto children can also put their Christmas wish list in a cannon to Santa, look at artificial snowflakes through microscopes, and enter the Snow Chamber where they will meet Santa and bag themselves a present and a photo.
Santa’s Snowflake Grotto features:
• The Wish Cannon - Children fill in a Christmas Wish List and then place them in special containers, then see their list zoom up the tube and activate a puff of smoke
• Snowflake Scope - Children are invited to look through a series of microscopes at artificial snowflakes magnified thousands of times. From this, they start to see snow in an entirely new light
• Snow Control - Children can play and interact with levers, buttons, cranking wheels and telephones embedded in the walls which will light up, beep, start-up music or even release jets steam. Whatever they do, children MUST NOT press the “DO NOT PRESS” button!

The holiday season will be supported by Westfield’s luxury range of in-centre services including hands-free shopping, gift wrapping, concierge and valet parking. The hands-free shopping service takes the strain away from carrying heavy bags and stores them safely whilst shoppers enjoy their Christmas experience. Plus, Guest Services is always on hand to consult visitors on all their shopping needs. Friends and family that are difficult to buy for? Then consider a Westfield Gift Card.

Westfield is delighted to announce its extended Christmas opening hours. For more information about Christmas at Westfield London and Westfield Stratford City, visit
