Children at LEGOLAND

Who can apply?

We welcome applications on behalf of children aged 2-18 with a confirmed Serious illness/Long Term illness, disability* or disadvantage, who would benefit from a day out at a Merlin attraction.

If you have received tickets from Merlin’s Magic Wand previously and were able to use them, then please be aware of the following: As our Charity continues to help more and more children every year but our resources are not unlimited and due to a high demand for tickets we are currently only accepting applications from those families or children we have not previously supported/have not visited us before (this includes those families with additional children with disabilities/illnesses). Our aim is to ensure that the maximum number of eligible children are able to enjoy a day out with us just as so many have already done. This will be under review and should the situation change we will advise of this on our website.

It is not an objective of the charity to help other charities or organizations to raise money and so applications for tickets to be used for raffles, auctions or other fundraising, or for cash grants to other charities or organizations will not be considered.

If you think you are eligible then please complete our online application form.

* Applications must be made by an adult. We unfortunately we cannot accept individual family applications from those with a PO Box address.

Before You Decide…

In order to help you choose the most appropriate attraction for your visit please consider the following:

  • Distance you will need to travel
