Merlin’s Magic Spaces

We support children facing the challenges of serious illness, disability or adversity access the Magic of Merlin with three Magic Spells by supplying tickets and travel grants to enable them to visit our attractions. However, some children are faced with conditions and circumstances that prevent them from making the trip. This is why we invest in Merlin's Magic Spaces.

Merlin's Magic Spaces is a local outreach project designed to ensure that local children who are prevented from visiting our attractions due to severe illness, physical disability or other exceptional circumstances still have the opportunity to experience the unique magic of Merlin.

Success stories

We have completed many fantastic projects so far, such as a SEA LIFE themed playroom in Hamburg, Germany, a LEGOLAND themed cottage in Davenport, Florida and a Warwick Castle themed sensory room in Coventry, UK.
