The magic of Christmas

Fancy a visit to Santa's workshop, without the long trip to the North Pole? Well, you're in luck because he's heading to nearby Surrey - lean in close and I'll tell you all about this brilliant 2.5 hour immersive and magical festive experience.

CAF_Elves_barrow_CMYKIf you want to treat your family to the magic that comes from a visit to the North Pole at Christmas – without breaking the bank, or even leaving the country – you’re in luck. At Chobham Adventure Farm, near Woking, the jolly ole guy has set up a festive workshop and he needs some help from official elf helpers.

And because we’re already in the spirit of Christmas here at Muddy, we’re giving away tickets for a family of five – worth over £200 – to take part in this wonderful experience. Click here to enter.

This is the second year Santa’s Magic of Christmas Experience has been at the Chobham Adventure Farm – and it’s a brilliant (and much more affordable) alternative to the real Lapland!

The immersive 2.5 hour experience will transport your family to a magical place where they’ll learn how to become an official elf helper and get an official elf name, meet real live reindeer, help Mrs Claus decorate gingerbread men, make a teddy bear and finally get their hands on the golden key and meet Father Christmas himself.


It’s an interactive experience that takes you in small groups through five festive rooms, guided by Santa’s helpers. Any children with even a whiff of suspicion about Santa Claus and his magic will have their faith restored and leave as true believers. Learning how to believe is part of the elf training.

You’ll visit Santa as a family and, as you’d expect, every child receives a gift from Santa. The lovely thing here, is that the grown-ups are not left out and will also receive a gift. Children also get to keep the teddy bear they made in the build-a-bear workshop.CAF_Elf_curtain_CMYK

The experience is on from Sat 30 Nov until Tues 24 Dec. Tickets during peak periods are £42.50 for adults and children over 1; and £32.50 during off-peak times. Children under 1 are free when they’re coming with siblings or £15 when they’re not with siblings. Tickets also include entry into the Adventure Farm for the day.
