Step back in time at Bletchley Park and experience a festive 1940s Vintage Grotto, where Father Christmas will be at home in our beautifully decorated Mansion throughout December.

Christmas is an exciting time of the year, but the sights, sounds and festive sensations can be challenging for children with autism or other sensory conditions. On selected dates we are offering tailored autism friendly Christmas Grotto sessions.

Every child that visits Father Christmas will receive an age appropriate present and while you wait there will be a reduced-noise festive craft area for your children to enjoy.

During the sessions, we aim to:

  • Adjust the lighting level to suit your child
  • Turn music off if preferred
  • Provide a specific time slot to minimise waiting time
  • Keep the festive craft area as quiet as possible
  • Provide resources in advance including a sensory map and social story
  • Offer you the chance to discuss any particular triggers for your child with us in advance
