We think that everyone deserve a night off during the festive season, so dust off your fancy shoes and get ready for a fun, Christmas buffet and disco at Sands by the Sea!


Christmas at Sands is easy. At just £30 per person for the buffet and amazing entertainment, you can relax and stuff yourself silly with your group of friends and family! Plus, annual pass holders for Adventure Island, Adventure Inside and Sealife Adventure get 20% off!

Hello, The afternoon tea went very well thank you, staff were friendly and helpful, which lots of people commented on. Also, the value for the afternoon tea which included soft drinks was good, we were very happy this price included soft drinks as a lot of places only include hot drinks in the afternoon tea, so this was a lovely bonus. Overall, really good experience and lots of guests will certainly be recommending sands by the sea! Thank you Hannah
