Christmas at Denby Pottery Village

[AD] When I used to live in Belper, I loved a mooch around Denby Pottery Village. There’s a brilliant factory shop where I’ve picked up some utter bargain pieces of this iconic English brand over the years. I haven’t actually been back since leaving Belper, but we have been invited to review their Santa Experience… I will report back on that in due course but thought it was worth sharing some of their Christmas offerings here (as I know some of you like to get things booked early!). All the images here have been kindly provided by Denby’s PR team.

Santa Experience at Denby

Billed as a magical visit to meet Santa in his cosy cabin, children also receive a personalised elf observation report and can hand-pick their own special gift from Santa’s Workshop.

I was really impressed with the booking experience. It was a similar price to where  we usually go, but this seemed a much more personalised experience. There’s the option to add some information about your child to make their visit to Santa truly magical. I can’t wait to see the look on my daughter’s face!

The experience is £16.95 during peak times – or save £2 by going at quieter times, Monday to Friday during school time, so perfect for pre-schoolers.
