When you have a four-year old, just learning the magic of Christmas, you want to do everything in your power to make memories that will last a lifetime. Everbody celebrates in their own way, and since moving to London there is certainly no lack of choices to take my little one out to meet Father Christmas.

But there’s one option that has been far-exceeding all expectations and bringing the true Magic of Christmas to everyone in England (and beyond) for years.

Lapland UK is a magical place where forest elves take you on a magical journey through an Enchanted Forest to a secret Elven door that travels directly inside Lapland UK and the Elven Village at the top of the world.

So we took my daughter, and we had one of the most memorable, wonderful days of our lives. The day starts in the Enchanted Forest. We checked in, and then enjoyed a few snacks. Afterwards, we were instructed by the Elf Travel Master to head into the enchanted glade, where we met Eeko and Sage – the Forest Elves, who told us we were there to help Father Christmas build toys (as there were so many good kids this year).

Through the magic door we enter Lapland. Lydia was given a very special task – to deliver this case to Conker the Elf in the Toy Factory, which was our first stop on the tour.

Next stop was Mother Christmas’s kitchen where we helped decorate Christmas Treats and heard a story about a tiny Elf that lives inside Lapland UK, songs and stories!

After this we spent time in the Elf Villiage, where we met a few more of the wonderful Elves of inside Lapland UK, including my daughter’s favourite Pixie Mixie (she owns the Sweet Shoppe).

Lydia also wrote and mailed a letter to Santa at the Lapland Post Office!

Finally, it was off though the snowy forest to see Father Christmas…
But not before stopping by the Reindeer pen and seeing this cutie.

Though the snowy path we go, and arrive at Father Christmas’s Cottage. He spoke to her for several minutes, about all the wonderful help she has been, and checked that her name was on the Good List before giving her a wonderful gift of a snuggly husky of her own.

The look on her face says it all, a wonderful, magical, memorable day – and something I hope we can do again year after year.
