Sneak peek: The Christmas Grotto at Brookside Garden Centre

Alright, alright – I know it’s only November but let’s face it – once Halloween and Fireworks Night is over and done with Christmas creeps up mighty fast. With job and health woes this year I’ve been trying to get into the festive spirit nice and early and how better than to have a sneak peek at the legendary Grotto at Brookside Garden Centre in East Peckham. **PLEASE NOTE – I’ve tried to keep spoilers to a minimum but if you really don’t want to see what it’s like then don’t scroll down!** The most stressful day of the year? In local mum circles the day the Grotto is available to book is known as the most stressful day of the year – at 5:30pm half of Kent log on and book slots for the award-winning Grotto. But why is it legendary? Christmas is all about the magic – I’ve been to a fair few Grotto’s over the years and none has had a patch on the Brookside one.  You are taken through a magical wonderland by your own personal elf and then you get to meet Father Christmas in a Scandinavian style log cabin at the end.  It’s perfectly…
