One of the most beloved children’s stories of all time is being brought to life with a Christmas twist.
C S Lewis’ timeless tale, The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe, will see Kent’s historic Leeds Castle transformed into snowy Naria for the festive season.
From Saturday, November 25, the castle grounds, just outside of Maidstone, will be turned into a winter wonderland with icy spells, snow-covered lands and a chill in the air.
The immersive family experience will feature live storytelling and beautiful installations inspired by the 1950 novel inside the castle, all of which will help this classic tale jump off of the page and into real life.
The rooms inside the castle, which are currently themed around the 1930s, will also be decorated for the festive season throughout November and December.
There will also be familiar characters from the story, including Aslan the Lion and Mr Tumnus, for visitors to meet along the way.
The interactive experience is suitable for all ages and is included for free with an admission ticket to Leeds Castle.
Leeds Castle tickets start from £30 for adults and can be purchased online here.
The previous evening, this year’s Christmas Lights at Leeds Castle trail will also open to the public.
The spectacular light trail will see the castle grounds illuminated after dark with stunning displays, projections and installations from Friday, November 24.
There will also be a firepit where visitors can toast marshmallows, festive music from speakers around the grounds and a chance to spot Father Christmas at his grotto.
Tickets to Christmas Lights at Leeds Castle can be booked online here.
Tickets range from £18 (off-peak) to £22.50 (peak dates) for adults.
