A Shrek Christmas Grotto Is Coming To London This December


Because everyone’s favourite ogre will be visiting London in December, get ready to Shrek the Halls.

Santa is exchanging the North Pole for a wetland on London’s South Bank this year.

The Christmas Grotto at the Shrek’s Adventure attraction, which is close to Westminster Bridge, is scheduled to take place next month. It appears like it will be a family-friendly activity.

The Far, Far away experience is set to launch on Saturday 4th December, and will run all the way through until Christmas Eve.

Visitors will get to pose for a picture with Santa, and be gifted some sweet treats made by the Christmas elves.

You’ll also be able to take photos with the ogre himself, who will be kitted out in a specially-made Christmas outfit.

The voyage starts off on a fantastic 3D “flying” bus with everyone’s favourite Donkey. He’ll undoubtedly be asking often, “Are we there yet?”

A tour of the slimy swamp will take visitors past sights like Shrek’s latrine and a dirty hot tub.

The bus will next transport you to Drury Lane, where you may participate in an interactive tale starring the Muffin Man (the Muffin Man? The Muffin Man!, Rumpelstiltskin, Puss In Boots, and Pinocchio.

A spokesperson for Shrek’s Adventure has advised people to pre-book if they want to see the grotto. You’ve only got a month left, so better make it snappy!

You’ll be able to save up to 20 per cent off if you pre-book – but on-the-door tickets cost £30 for adults and £24 for children. The Grotto experience is included for those who purchase standard Shrek’s Adventure tickets.

Doors are open ‘most days a week’, but the most up-to-date information can be found on the website.

BRB, just signing up for this so we can live out our Princess Fiona dreams.
