Lotherton unveils this year’s icy Christmas Experience

Get set to step into Christmas as Yorkshire family attraction, Lotherton, has revealed icy plans for its magical Christmas Experience and launched its sought-after tickets. 

With the region set to experience a wave of early Christmas cheer, Lotherton is skating ahead of the competition with the addition of a very special ice-rink to this year’s festive experience. 

From 22 November 2019 to 5 January 2020, families can enjoy a festive day out like no other, embarking on adventures with fairies, elves and Santa himself. 

The Christmas Experience will include seasonal favourites such as the Elf Village, the Enchanted Fairy Dell, the Twelve Days of Christmas Woodland Walk, and the Christmas Courtyard. 

Exploring the house will transport visitors back in time, as they enjoy each room decked out in the traditional festive finery of an Edwardian Christmas. 

And, of course, Santa will take up residence in his very own North Pole, where little ones can help the elves in their workshop before visiting Santa to share their festive wishes. 

As well as these family favourites, brand new this year will be a 596 square metre ice-rink for visitors to get their skates on and enjoy a frozen fairytale on the ice. 

Leader of Leeds City Council, Cllr Judith Blake, said: “This is a truly special experience for families to enjoy from across the county and beyond. Santa will be taking up residence in the North Pole and the beautiful Edwardian house will be decorated in traditional Christmas decorations. Families will be able to take part in a range of festive activities, taking place across the Estate. 

“But the magic doesn’t stop there, families can also enjoy a Twelve Days of Christmas walk through the Estate’s mysterious woodland, or dress up as Edwardians and use one of the traditional backdrops to take a family portrait – it’s certainly going to be a fantastic day out for the whole family to enjoy.”

The Christmas Experience opens on 22 November 2019 and is run by Lotherton and Breeze. Tickets are available now, with a number of visit options, early booking is recommended.
