Magic On Tour

What about children who meet our eligibility criteria but can’t get to a Merlin attraction? There is an exciting community outreach initiative called Magic On Tour.

Magic On Tour does what it says on the tin (literally). We pack some of the magic and fun of a Merlin attraction into a minibus, a train, or a car, and we take it on tour, delivering it directly to children in schools, hospices, hospitals and orphanages. We work with attractions that volunteer their time to create special activities and fun visits for eligible children to enjoy, and we fund it with a Magic On Tour grant.

Magic Spaces

In places where children spend a lot of time, such as hospitals, treatment centres, orphanages, special educational needs schools and hospices, we offer Merlin’s Magic Spaces. We work with Merlin Magic Makers (yep, that’s a real job) to design and create attraction-themed areas inspired by some of the world’s favourite attraction brands.
