This holiday season, Wildwood Devon invites you to step back in time with Earth Santa – a unique twist on the traditional Father Christmas experience. 

From the 18th to the 24th of December, Santa and his Earth Elves can be found in Wildwood’s Saxon Village – an outdoor living history centre set up to authentically recreate the atmosphere and architecture of a traditional Saxon settlement.

Nestled amidst the scenic beauty of Wildwood Devon’s Saxon Village, Earth Santa will transport you to a magical era, providing the perfect backdrop for an unforgettable holiday adventure.

Santa will be available between 11am and 3pm during the day. And for the first time EVER, Santa will be running an evening grotto on Friday 22 December, which will run from 5pm – 8pm.

In the true spirit of the season, each child will receive a special gift from Earth Santa and have the opportunity to tell him their Christmas wishes and dreams, creating a magical and personalised experience that will be cherished for years to come.
