Santa's little helpers are missing

There’s more to see than incredible classic cars at the Lakeland Motor Museum this Christmas!

Twelve of Santa’s mischievous little elves have gone astray amid the vintage vehicles, motorbikes and other fascinating exhibits at the popular attraction.

Your Christmas mission – if you choose to accept it – is to have some festive family fun along the museum’s Elf Trail!

Youngsters, parents and grandparents are encouraged to see if they can crack the clues and track down the cheeky little imps.

And if your little ones are lucky enough to spot Santa’s little helpers – why not take a Christmas sElfie to prove it?

When you’ve finished - head to the Museum Shop where Father Christmas will leave a present for all those youngsters who take on the Elf Trail.

It’s a perfect opportunity to spend some quality time with the family during the festive season – and if Elf spotting builds up an appetite – you can grab a bite to eat or something to drink - in the riverside Café Ambio.

The special Elf Trail at the Lakeland Motor Museum runs every day until Christmas Eve and is open to kids of all ages!

Children can colour their entries over Christmas and then hand them in – the competition will be judged in January 2023. It’s for age groups 0-4, 5-7 and 8-10 years. The prize for each category is a family ticket for the Lakeland Motor Museum.
