would probably be cheaper to buy/hire a santa outfit and ask a friend to do it iykwim

I meant a santa's grotto that can be booked! I dread the idea of queuing with a one year old

Mrs Claus at Pollok House, Pollok Park. They do timed tickets. Nice cafe too.

Mrs Claus sounds ideal! The children involved are scared of Santa, but desperately want to see him anyway [fhmmm]

Unwind your DC sound like my DD, she is scared of Santa too but was desperate to try and see him in his 'grotto' at Silverburn confused. I had to use bribery and corruption to get her away from the money sucking hell hole!

ooops hehe, i dont know about places you can book, but we went to m&d's as they have a story bit and reindeer, but tbh i was so disappointed it cost us over £50 due to their bad advertising, it said you get adult tickets free, one adult free to each child, so we had 3 children and 3 adults going, but told you not to put the adult tickets thru as you get them when you arrive, so we booked and paid, and arrived, and had to buy 3 adult tickets too as it was only on crimbo eve that the adult tickets are free grrrr lol

but it was also very impersonal, you didnt get a chance to see the reindeer properly, before entering the grotto you are standing in a tunnel tent, in the freezing cold, which was out of order expecting kids to stand their, the stupid little girls directing people, went to send us one way then another said oh no THAT santa is busy grrr my son was 6 yesterday, and could have easily picked up on the fact there was more than one santa there, then they we were pushed in, pic n pushed out, my son got to quickly tell him he wanted a bike, my daughter never got a chance, but luckily they went to bo'ness too, for the santa train ride etc, and that santa was fab spoke to the children etc

imho i wouldnt go back to strathclyde

and sorry kinda went off track on a rant haha
