We look forward to welcoming you back soon


There is something for everyone to enjoy at The Silver Mountain Experience this Christmas.

Come and explore the Elves’ Workshop, where you will also find Santa in his Grotto! Tickets must be pre-booked and include a present for every child and each timed slot is for a social bubble only.

Visitors will be able to see the elves busily prepare for the big day and meet Santa who will have an early present for children. This visit will be completely private to each ‘social bubble’ meaning that visitors can have their own personal tour.

Alongside this excitement, there is a whole host of other activities included within the ticket price. Visitors can enjoy Christmas cookie decorating, explore a special Reindeer Trail and enjoy the other surface attractions, including the Mining Museum, Miner’s Trail, Fossil Dig and more.

Join us for some much-needed festive fun with the whole family this December! The event is designed to be COVID-19 secure, so your tour through the Elves’ Workshop and Santa’s Grotto will be your own private group.

The guided tours 'A Miner's Life' and 'A Dragon's Tale' can also be added for an extra special visit, and The Miner's Rest Cafe will be open serving delicious festive treats throughout the event!
