Where is Lapland UK and how much does it cost? Tickets, prices and opening dates – The Sun | The Sun

LAPLAND UK is an immersive adventure the whole family can enjoy — and you don't have to fly Scandinavia for the pleasure.

A reimagining of the Father Christmas myth with an ancient Elven civilisation, the award-winning experience can create memories that last a lifetime.

What is Lapland UK?

The winter wonderland can be found in Ascot, Berkshire, and lets kids live out their Christmas dreams with Santa and his team of helpers.

Each child — known as Small Folk — receives a personalised invitation from Santa sealed with wax in a presentation box.

Infants under 12 months will receive an Elflet card inviting them to join your Small Folk on their adventure to Lapland.

On arrival guests are presented with their own "Elf Passport" to give them permission to travel along the elven pathways and through a magical door.

They also get the chance to convert money into "jingle" currency, which they are able to spend at the park.

And they will receive a husky toy to take home and look after.

Once inside Small Folk will be treated to a 90-minute show of immersive theatre, with interactive performers.

There will also be a visit to the toy factory where youngsters get to help the elves, Whittle, Conker and Wish, build toys.

Then they can visit the "Mother Christmas" Kitchen where they can enjoy gingerbread decorating classes.

A toy is then given to parents secretly in time for Christmas, as well as an apron they get to wear when they make gingerbread in the kitchen.

In addition to all of that, guests get to meet huskies and reindeer before the children are treated to an audience with the big man himself — Father Christmas.

There is also an ice skating rink, cafes, a post office and sweet shop, while further festive treats can be found in Pumpernickel's restaurant.

The whole tour takes around four hours and is perfect for Christmas-loving adults and children of all ages.

A framed picture with Saint Nick is also included.

Someone else wrote: "I didn’t think I would say this (I’m not easily impressed) but it was worth every penny none of us will forget this experience in a hurry."

While a third added: "We got lucky with the weather and enjoyed our second time at Lapland UK. It was truly magical, however the queuing part for Santa and at the end when you collect your photos was long."
