Famed as the next best thing to visiting Santa’s workshop in the north pole, Santa’s Magic Kingdom in Kent is not only the Hop Farm’s chief attraction during the winter season but in all of Surrey as well. Tipped to be the finest venue in all of Kent to indulge and immerse one’s self in the magic of Christmas this indoor winter wonderland is a highlight point of interest for any visitor heading to Kent this Christmas season. Ideally suited for children, the Hop Farm’s Magic Kingdom offers parents and kids a Christmas experience that goes beyond the commercial Santa encounters that uniformly occupy shopping malls throughout the holiday season.
Taking one in to a magical world unto itself the two and a half hour tour of Santa’s Magic Kingdom begins with a train ride through familiar scenes of Christmas celebrations that have been illuminated and enhanced using special effects. Mobile characters reenacting the rituals of Christmas and prancing reindeers await those on board the train ride which promptly arrives at the fairytale palace that marks the entrance to the attraction. Quirky elves greet visitors upon entrance and offer children a special golden ticket which entitles them to discover all the secrets of this mesmerizing kingdom where Christmas is alive and well throughout the season.
Santa’s workshop is the first stop within the kingdom where guests can see busy elves building toys of various shapes and sizes to be distributed on Christmas eve. A walk across the Forest of Light takes visitors to Santa’s Post Office where they can pen their own wish list and tuck it inside the special post tunnels. Kids can make their own decorations at the craft workshop run by elves before heading down to Reindeer Land where a puppet show with sing-a-longs and the famed reindeers that pull Santa’s sleigh await. Penguins, elves and polar bears are found in the Secret Realm whereas Santa himself waits for each visitor in his study. An interactive Christmas circus show tops off the experience that can truly be described as unforgettable.
