This award-winning experience takes the story of Father Christmas and makes it come alive creating unforgettable memories.


The creators of LaplandUK, Mike and Alison Battle, a couple with four young boys had a dream. 

They wanted to cherish their children's belief in Father Christmas and make Christmas the most joyful time for them. However, they couldn't find a place that truly captured the significance of this moment to them. 

In 2007, their dream finally came true when they brought their imagined Christmas stories to life with the creation of LaplandUK. 

Located in Ascot, LaplandUK is an immersive and authentic representation of Father Christmas' homeland.

To ensure an extraordinary experience they needed a world filled with enchanting tales. A world where elves, huskies, reindeer, and captivating stories could make both children and adults suspend their disbelief. 

Believability was crucial so they assembled a team of talented Hollywood set designers and professionals from the West End to create an exceptionally beautiful world. 

LaplandUK became a magical place where families could immerse themselves in their children's belief in Father Christmas.
