Victorian Santa's GrottoThis Christmas, travel back in time at the Museum of London and Museum of London Docklands with the Victorian Santa's Grotto. Both grottos are set in traditional Victorian streets with festive decorations while traditional carols add to the atmosphere. Tell Santa your Christmas wishes and receive a special gift, and you can also get a photograph of your child and Father Christmas (for an additional cost). Be sure to leave time to look around the museums, both are free to enter and contain a treasure trove of fascinating London artefacts.
