UK’s biggest indoor Christmas event opens next week with Santa village and train

If you're looking for the ultimate festive day out but don't want to hit a classic Christmas market, then you may want to check out a magical new experience sure to tick all the boxes!

That's because the UK's biggest indoor Christmas experience is back complete with a North Pole village, Santa's Toy Shop, an enchanted forest, and ice castle and even a 'supersonic' train.

The aptly-named Magical Christmas Adventure will be opening its doors from November 25 and run through to December 24, with heaps on offer for families.

Located at the 4 Kingdoms Adventure Park and Farm in Headley, visitors will have a chance to decorate cookies with elves, make their own teddy bears, look out for snowballs and polar bears, and help the elves prepare for the Santa Annual New Toy Awards (aka the SANTAs).

Oh, and of course there'll be an opportunity to meet the big man himself at Santa's Grotto – and kids will even receive a special toy as part of their visit! Even when you're finished exploring the magical land the excitement doesn't end, as you'll get to enjoy a ride on a 'supersonic' train that takes you back from the North Pole to the UK in mere minutes.

The experience promises a 'spectacular 2.5-hour storytelling journey filled with festive goodness', spread across over 40,000 square feet.

You can already book tickets at Child tickets start from £45 and include a toy from Father Christmas, make your own teddy bear, cookies they can decorate, and even some reindeer food to feed Rudolph. Adult tickets start from £35. There are also VIP options which include extras such as an outfit for your teddy bear, food and drink, and a personalised letter from Santa.

To get there, the nearest train station is Newbury which is about four miles from the attraction, or you can use the local buses which are hourly except for Sundays and Bank Holidays. For those visiting by car, there is free onsite parking at the event.

It's not the only fun festive event that families may want to have on their radar this year.

For example, Legoland Windsor is going to be getting a festive makeover between November 23 2023 and January 3 2024, complete with a winter wonderland, glittering lights, snow-covered trees and a huge 10-metre-tall Christmas tree made from Duplo blocks. Father Christmas will also be making an appearance as he travels around on his sleigh with his helpful elves so holidaymakers can take in the festive cheer while watching his parade through Heartlake City all the way to Pirate Shores.

Visitors can also add a meeting with Father Christmas for an extra £20 per person so little ones can tell him their festive wishes and receive a special Lego gift too.
