There is also still time to visit Father Christmas in Lapland - Lapland in Kent that is www.laplanduk.co.uk This British version of the more exotic trip abroad to meet Father Christmas has no connection with last year's Lapland in the New Forest and, despite some criticisms for being expensive, has received good reviews in the national press for the quality of the experience. It does cost up to £87 for each adult and child but as all the activities, gifts and a two course meal is included in the price it is still arguably less expensive that the overseas alternative and better for the environment. There is even an Eeko Elf on hand to explain the importance of the environment to the children! Activities include making gingerbread with Mother Christmas, helping the elves in the toy workshop, ice skating and writing and posting a letter to Father Christmas and, of course, a visit to Father Christmas's cabin to meet the man himself and receive a present.
