Santa's Sending Out Personal Invitations to his Grotto

If you have been searching for Santa's grotto in the North Pole, then you've gone out of your way for nothing. In 2006, Father Christmas recreated his Arctic home remarkably close by in Whitmoor Forest, Berkshire, and called it LaplandUK.

LaplandUK was created by husband and wife team, Mike and Alison Battle, who were frustrated by the lack of quality magical Christmas experiences for their own children. Most of the time Father Christmas visits retail outlets purely as a promotional figure to bring more shoppers and profits. Mike and Alison wanted to change that. LaplandUK is an immersive theatrical production that celebrates childhood innocence and traditional Christmas values for an unforgettable experience.

I mean, who could forget a personal invitation from Santa? He will be sending out letters to boys and girls, asking them to come and visit his grotto between the 29th November - 24th December. Children will be able to help elves in the Toy Factory, decorate gingerbread biscuits with Mother Christmas, go ice skating, meet the husky dogs and reindeer, and exchange their pounds for elf currency.

The three and half hour experience will end with a magical encounter with Father Christmas himself, who will gift each child with a luxury keepsake.

Tickets are 45-79.50 per person, with premium tickets taking place on the most magical dates, and including a limited edition bauble.
