Family fun outdoor activity at the Marble Arch Caves 

 10/12/2022 – 20/12/2022

A bunch of little elves have escaped from Santa’s Grotto deep within the Marble Arch Caves. There have been reports of elf activity in the local woodland close to the caves and Santa has asked for your help to track them down and to decide which elves are being ‘good’ and which are being ‘bad’.

An epic adventure invites you to explore a trail of elves who have gotten themselves in a world of funny scenarios and predicaments in the woodland.  This above ground activity will be mostly outside, or beneath open-sided roofed areas on a looped walk through the wonderful ancient woodland, the perfect place to have fun outdoors this season. Booking required. To find out more about the Marble Arch Caves, please click here.
