Visit Lapland UK

Posted on: 18 November 2008 by Gareth Hargreaves

Lapland UK is again bringing its magic to Kent this Christmas.

After a sensational sell out inaugural year in 2007, this year’s location will be Bewl Water Estate which will be transformed into a winter wonderland from now until Christmas Eve.

The Lapland UK experience begins when a personalised invitation to each child from Father Christmas arrives in the post requesting his or her help to assist the elves in the toy factory this Christmas. Here begins the children’s magical journey along the elves’ enchanted pathway to learn the ‘secrets in the forest’!

Families will enjoy four hours of magical fun at Lapland UK. This starts with a visit to Father Christmas’s toy factory, where the children train as apprentice elves - working on the majestic, hand carved rocking horses created by the world renowned Stevenson Brothers.

Then every child will delight in helping Mother Christmas in her Gingerbread house, before moving on to Lapland UK’s very own North Pole Post Office where they can send a letter to Father Christmas.

Whilst at Lapland UK, everyone will also learn about the indigenous Saami people of Lapland when visiting their tented encampment, where children can listen to traditional Nordic stories as well as meet the much loved Husky dogs and reindeer of Lapland.

Lapland in the UKNew for 2008, families can also go ice skating in the Village Square as well as enjoy a delicious freshly prepared two-course meal in the new seated log cabin restaurant, both of which are included in the ticket price and are another unique Lapland UK feature.

The highlight of the day is sure to be the family’s personalised private audience with Father Christmas in his snowy woodland home, where extra-special memories will be created as the magical man personalises each visit, referencing information about the child’s interests and friends as provided by parents at the time of booking.

To cap it all every visitor will receive a beautiful gift from Lapland UK to remember their special day.


Prices range from £55 to £85 per person and include a meal, all activities and quality gifts for all.
