This year, McArthurGlen Designer Outlet Swindon will kick off the festive season with the arrival of Santa’s Grotto, his enchanted sleigh, reindeer visits, and mouthwatering food stalls.

Whether guests are looking to find the perfect present, enjoy the festivities or explore this season’s new store openings such as Molton Brown or White Stuff, there has never been a better time to visit.

Santa and his elves will be inviting families to visit their Grotto from 10th November. Children visiting Santa this year will plant a magic bean and marvel as Santa transforms it into a real mini Christmas tree, which they can decorate and take home. Santa will also be making sure all children receive a special present ahead of the big day.

Located in the Heart, by SOHO Coffee the Grotto will be made even more magical with the addition of falling snow. Every thirty minutes snow will transform the Grotto into a winter wonderland. Entry to Santa’s Grotto is £10 per child and tickets can be purchased in advance via the following website

Santa’s enchanted ‘Elfie Sleigh’ is parked in the centre’s entrance making it a great photo opportunity for all visitors.  Families can also meet the special reindeer who power Santa’s sleigh over Christmas. Santa’s reindeers can be found on Train Street, leading to the main entrance of McArthurGlen Designer Outlet Swindon every weekend in December from 1 to 3pm.

After a busy day of shopping, guests can indulge in a delicious festive treat at the Christmas food stalls located outside the centre on Train Street. From mouth-watering German bratwurst to Yorkshire pudding wraps or a warming winter drink, the market includes something for every taste.

Centre Manager, Tina Cumpstey said: “Christmas at McArthurGlen Swindon is a truly wonderful time of year. Our Christmas Grotto is bigger and better than ever before and we look forward to spreading the festive cheer with the arrival of Santa and his reindeers.”

On top of all the festive fun, shoppers will of course be able to make the most of promotions available across the centre, which hosts over 100 high street, premium and designer brands and offers amazing year-round savings of up to 60% off RRP. McArthurGlen Swindon will be open throughout the festive shopping period to ensure that shoppers can purchase all their Christmas gifts in time for the big day.
