A magical enchanted light trail around Knowsley Safari.

Christmas has well and Truly landed at Knowsley Safari park. Looking for A magical light trail in Liverpool? Then look no further. Santa and his Elves along with a bit of Christmas magic have transformed the foot safari. This wonderfully lit up enchanted trailer is perfect for children and their adults to enjoy.

Having been before I was very happy the event was back on again this year. It is great value for money as well as the kids loved it, This is Miles first Christmas event that he has been old enough to appreciate which made it even more Special.

The enchanted trail itself lasts around 45 minutes but there is nothing to say you couldn’t’ t walk around twice. The night time backdrop only accentuates the amazing lights in the woodland. Our only downside was we attended just as storm was setting in so we didn’t stay to long.

You can pay for a ride pass which is £10 per child for unlimited rides. They have rides for all ages here including a carousel ride which is Maisie’s favourite. Entry to the park is any time from 4pm to arrive early for plenty of time to take advantage of the rides and the café onsite.

Want to see Santa while you’re here? It’s £12 for a Family of 6 and you get your picture included. If you want to take your own photos you can do as well. I did try to get a photo of the kids with Santa, however, Mile’s wasn’t a fan of the Jolly bearded man and cried the whole time. But who’s young children didn’t cry the first time they met the big guy.

Overall very happy with the little Grotto and Santa himself, Anybody else a bit of a Santa snob? It sounds superficial of me but there is nothing worse than paying through the nose for a grotto visit to find a Budget Santa in a Grotto decked out with a £10 Poundland decorations budget.

This is my go-to place to visit Santa and it will be for a long time as it’s just magical and offers so much more than just a grotto.
