Lilidorei is a magical play and adventure village located within the stunning Alnwick Gardens and is the biggest play structure in the world.

When you visit Lilidorei, you can create your own narrative; visit the clan houses, play on the world’s largest play structure, take part in daily activities or join in with stories with one of the Story Keepers!

Lilidorei aims to create an environment that encourages both imaginary and physical play. Although there are no inhabitants in the village you may hear them when walking around from the immersive soundscape that has been created and you can explore each of the clans habitats and find out more about how they live.


Lilidorei is a magical place full of play and imagination. There will always be activities, games, and amazing stories to tell and be told, with something new and exciting to experience every time you visit! As well as exploring the Clan Houses joining in with activities and taking part in storytelling, you will also be able to venture onto the world’s largest play structure and test your bravery.

Lilidorei is aimed at ages 11 and under, but we have seen grown adults enjoying the slides as much as the children! And good news if you are aged 2 or under, (and by aged 2, we mean anything under 3) then it’s your lucky day – anyone aged 2 and under are FREE of charge!
