Lilidorei playground at Alnwick Gardens officially opens in time for May half-term holidays
Christmas came early as the Duchess of Northumberland cut the ribbon on the world’s largest play structure at the Alnwick Garden.
Hundreds of children were present for the opening of Lilidorei, a magical village where it’s Christmas year-round. It is home to nine clans; including elves, hobgoblins and fairies; who worship the festive season, The clans are based around the six-slided Elfwin Drin, the central structure which at 26 metres, is taller than the Angel of the North.
The magical play park has been 12 years in the making and the designs have come from the imagination of the Duchess of Northumberland, Jane Percy. It was also supported by a £15 million-plus investment as part of the Borderlands Inclusive Growth Deal.
It is hoped that the attraction will bring 200,000 visitors to Northumberland, many expected outside of the busy summer high season. The Duchess of Northumberland spoke of her delight at seeing the project come to life saying: “I’m very happy because I’m not seeing any children on their mobile phones!
“That was the point of Lilidorei, put your phones away and use your imagination and play and wonder what’s going on. Lilidorei is a village there are a lot of questions and no answers and that’s great, you do not see children on their mobile phones, incredible.”
