Disney’s Frozen might have been out for a few years now, but we just can’t let it go. We’re still longing to go on a magical frosty adventure, filled with castles, friendly snowmen and possibly a princess or two. No matter how hard we dream of a white Christmas, the UK doesn’t always deliver, but it’s still possible to find the snowy spots if you know where to look. Here’s our guide to taking a trip around the UK, Frozen style and - great news - they’re all places you can get to by car. The cold never bothered us anyway…

The Arendelle Chapel

If you fancy recreating Elsa’s coronation, head to Greenwich Naval College, where the you can peer into the painted hall, which is currently being restored to its former glory - and the grounds of the college are the perfect place to copy Elsa’s flight from Arendelle. For bonus points, pay a trip to the Cutty Sark, which is next door - it’s easy to imagine the Duke of Weaselton being thrown from that ship.

Elsa’s palace

It might not be made of ice, but as the mercury drops and the ground glitters with frost, Kilchurn Castle does a brilliant impression of Elsa’s palace - it’s beautiful, it’s isolated, and while you wouldn’t want to spend all eternity there, it makes for a great day out. If you squint, you’d swear that you were right by the North Mountain.

The North Mountain

If you want to follow in the footsteps of Elsa, you need to find a beautiful snowy winter wonderland, so what could be more suitable than a place with ‘snow’ in the title. The Snowdonia National Park in Wales is packed with icy mountain peaks, and when you start to feel lonely there are plenty of fun things to do and ways to warm up. Why not visit King Arthur’s Labyrinth and pretend you’re hiding from Hans’ minions?

Hills

The Arendelle Hills

There’s only one place to go when you need to be up a hill, surrounded by a large body of water - and that’s the Lake District. Latrigg is one of the lowest fells in the area, which means that it’s a relatively easy climb for any young Frozen fans. There’s a strong chance of snow during the winter, so do wrap up warm and wear your sturdiest boots. Then do what the princesses would (probably) do, and stroll to Keswick for chocolate cake at the Café By The Lake.

Wandering Oaken’s trading post - and sauna…

In the UK, the closest you might get to a snowy, distant trading post is probably Unst post office in the Shetland Isles. While it’s perfectly picturesque, it might not be quite as jolly as an afternoon with Wandering Oaken, so you can recreate the setting by heading to the sauna at Bristol Lido - and exhausted parents of excited fans might like to try out the spa treatment menu.

Bumping into Olaf

Do you want to build a snowman? If you’re looking for a helpful one guide you on your journey, you may well spot him if you visit the village of Copley, County Durham, which is one of the snowiest parts of England. Travel to nearby Barnard Castle, and pretend you’re trekking to the Ice Palace.

The valley of the living rocks

It’s not exactly full of trolls, but it does have an interesting terrain and a snowy centre - it’s time to go skating at The Eden Project in St Austell, Cornwall. The ice rink is surrounded by wintry foliage - but, just like in the movie, it doesn’t get too chilly, as the temperature in the biomes gets downright tropical. It’s warm enough to melt the ice in your heart.

Anna and Elsa’s reunion

You might not be able to control the weather in the UK, but you can visit the new snow garden at The Snow Centre, an immersive experience that allows you to be surrounded by snow. Hug your loved ones as you enjoy one last blizzard. Older fans can practise skiing and snowboarding, and the whole family can try out the Ringo slide - there’s a happy ending for everyone.

Before you set off on you Frozen inspired trip, make sure you check your car in winter-ready and prevent your chances of breaking down right here.
