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

CHILDREN get to meet elves along with Mother and Father Christmas, while seeing the Toy Factory and the Christmas kitchen at Lapland UK this year.

Here is everything you need to know about the festive event, with celebs including Holly Willoughby even a fan.

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.

Kids will be able to meet huskies, reindeer and by the end of it, Father Christmas.

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 toys along the way – including a toy which they made in the workshop and is given to parents secretly in time for Christmas as well as an apron they used to make gingerbread in Mother Christmas' kitchen.

A framed photograph with Santa is also included.

Kids are also sent a personalised box before the tour with invites from Lapland and Santa himself, with parents advised to put it in the fridge as it was "sent directly from Lapland".

What are the reviews?

Families praise the experience for being inclusive of both parents and kids.

One woman wrote: "This is the only place in the UK on par with Disney Florida magic."

Someone else added: "I didn’t think I would say this (I’m not easily impressed) but it was worth every penny non of us will forget this experience in a hurry."

Celebrities are also fans – Holly Willoughby has recently been spotted there, along with David Beckham, Idris Elba and Liv Tyler.

How much does it cost?

Tickets cost £69 per person, excluding booking fees.

The event will run from November 13, 2021, to January 3, 2022.

Sun writer Simon Boyle visited the attraction with his family last Christmas – here is what you can expect from the event.

Last year, a hotel in Michigan launched a special Buddy the Elf Inspired suite experience.

A hotel in New York also had a lavish Christmas package deal with a private ice-rink, personal Nutcracker performance and even a private driver, butler, nanny and massage therapist – for £132k.
