And don’t you agree that Christmas time is the most magical of all?

Fortunately for us, we were given the opportunity to have the magic start early for my little girls, as they were cordially invited by none other than Father Christmas himself, to come visit him at his home in Lapland UK, (naturally!), and to assist his elves in making sure the toys were ready for all the little girls and boys who have been good this year. Here’s our experience of visiting Lapland UK with kids.

I Believe In Magic!

A few mornings ago, Holly (6) and Ella (3) ventured down the stairs to find the most beautiful wax-sealed invitations for each of them sat on the doorstep along with a little slurry of snow. Their names were prettily scribed in gorgeously authentic calligraphy style letters on the front, and inside was a plea from Father Christmas asking them to come and help him and his elves make the toys, due to so many children being good this year.

Obviously, this went down a complete storm!

Their eyes so alight with joy and excitement, which as I later discovered, was something I would see many times more in the days that lay ahead.

We arrived at Lapland UK, based in the stunning Whitmore Forest, Ascot in good time for our 3 o’clock tour experience.

You see, it’s not a theme park. As it clearly states on the website, ….

LaplandUK is an award winning immersive Christmas family theatrical experience that invites Big and Small Folk to step through a magical door into Lapland, travel along secret pathways, uncover the hidden Elven village and help Father Christmas’ Elves make toys for the children of the world.

Donned in warm coats, scarves and all of us with beaming excited faces, we headed off down along the signed pathways, to find a rustic wooden reception lodge which served as the entranceway to the fairy-tale Enchanted Forest.

We checked in with one of the extremely helpful elves at the front desk, who gave each of the girls their very own Elf Passports, which they would use along the journey to collect a stamp from each part of the tour. We also collected our ‘Elf Jingles’ in their beautiful little crimson velveteen pouches, which I had bought online a few days previously, but then found out they could easily be bought at the onsite ‘Elf Exchange’ too. £1 equates to one Elf Jingle.
