Head down to Llantrisant, South Wales to meet a very special guest
A very special guest is flying all the way from the North Pole to celebrate Christmas this year at The Royal Mint Experience, in Llantrisant, South Wales. As you all may know Santa Claus is very busy this time of the year, but he has set aside time to celebrate Christmas coin style this year and welcome all the good boys and girls for a festive day out at The Royal Mint Experience grotto.
It’s not Christmas without visiting Santa, so make sure you add that extra bit of magic to your festive season by coming to The Royal Mint Experience. Young visitors can expect to meet Santa himself, and will each receive a gift to take home as a memento of their visit. Look out for a range of free craft activities taking place during the month of December too.
Advance booking for Santa’s Grotto is essential, with entry £12.50 per child and £2 per adult. If you do plan on visiting Santa, The Royal Mint Experience Tour is included as part of the child ticket. Group sessions are also available weekdays to spend time with Santa, as well as take part in a range of festive activities with Santa and Mrs Claus. The Royal Mint Experience provides a great opportunity to go behind the scenes and discover stories from The Royal Mint’s 1,100 year history. Discover how coins were made and how they are made today through a series of walk-through exhibition zones that bring the organisation’s rich heritage to life.
Gift shoppers searching for inspiration or something a little bit special this Christmas will be delighted with the enticing range of gifts from collectable coins to books and chocolate coins available to purchase at The Royal Mint Experience gift shop - perfect presents or stocking fillers for family and friends of all ages.
