A FESTIVE journey through Santa's winter wonderland is waiting for families as the Magical Christmas Adventure returns to Berkshire this week.

Youngsters can enjoy a trip to the North Pole as Santa and his Elves prepare for the busiest night of the year, with the adventure including a tour Sparkle Copse village, the snow-laden forest, the elves' kitchen (bursting with cookies), plus Santa's grotto with the main man himself.

The family attraction, promising to be the UK's biggest indoor Xmas experience, at 4 Kingdoms Adventure Park  near Newbury is now in it's 11th year.

It involves a 2.5-hour storytelling journey filled with festive fun, as an immersive theatrical experience to help create excitement for the whole family.

The Magical Christmas Adventure returns on November 25 and will run up until December 24 - with tickets expected to sell out fast.

Guests can expect toys and teddies, snowballs and sleighs, reindeer and polar bears, and of course it wouldn’t be Christmas without presents.

Each year, The Magical Christmas Adventure welcomes 25,000 people and tickets are on sale now at www.themagicalchristmasadventure.co.uk. Children's tickets include a toy from Father Christmas, make your very own teddy bear,  cookies which guests can decorate themselves, and even some reindeer food to feed Rudolph and friends.

VIP tickets are available too, including all of the above as well as an outfit for your teddy bear, food and drinks and a personalised letter from Santa. There’ll also be the opportunity for guests to have their photo taken with Santa in his Grotto.

The experience is staged at the 4 Kingdoms Adventure Park and Farm, Newbury Road in Headley - with free parking on site.
