Quiet Santa Visit
5 December 1:30pm-4:00pm, 12 December 10.00 - 12noon
£7.25 per child
We understand that some children may find visiting Santa’s Grotto a bit difficult, so we invite them to visit on a quiet day where they can take part in all the activities and visit him in his magical Grotto. We will not allocate time slots, but to ensure each child has the best experience, numbers are limited, please call 01698 452382 to book.
A walking and cycling route between two of South Lanarkshire’s most prestigious historic buildings enhanced to provide an opportunity for everyone to enjoy and engage with their local heritage and landscape, while benefitting their health and wellbeing.
The app called "Chatelherault to Low Parks Heritage Trail" (a free download from Google Play or the App Store, depending on your device) details and tracks your route while providing heritage content along the way. Learn key facts about the landscape’s history and enjoy archive images and historic footage to enhance your experience.
Finish off with a leisurely wander around the museum, a browse in the shop or visit the café for a spot of something lovely! (This route can be reversed, Chatelherault’s shop & café are also well worth a visit!)
The project has been funded by Smarter Choices, Smarter Places – Paths for All’s grant scheme to support behavioural change initiatives to improve people’s lives.
