What is Lapland UK?

Lapland UK, located in Ascot, Berkshire, allows kids to live out their dreams with Santa and his team.

After entering the park, guests are given an “Elf Passport” to travel along the elven pathways and through a magical door, as well as being able to buy “jingle” currency to spend at the experience.

Inside is a 90 minute show of immersive theatre, where performers interact with the audience.

Also along the way is a visit to the Toy Factory where kids can help build the toys, as well as “Mother Christmas'” Kitchen with gingerbread decorating classes.

A visit to the ice skating rink as well as cafes, the post office and the sweet shop are also part of the day.

The entire tour takes up to four hours and is perfect for even young children.

The experience includes two toys along the way – a Cosy the Snowman toy which they made in the workshop (which is given to parents secretly in time for Christmas) and husky dog toy.
