Santa Specials

Weekends 11/12 December and 18/19 December 2021

The Santa Specials are now sold out

He’s waiting …

Yes, Santa will be ‘sleighing’ into our railway this year so come along and experience a magical Christmas with Santa and his elves!


CHOOSE AN EMPTY COMPARTMENT (EMPTY COMPARTMENTS HAVE “6 remaining” next to the name). Tickets are sold on the basis that you will have the exclusive use of a train compartment if you book all 6 seats. If you book fewer than 6 seats you may be sharing with other people.

We also recommend you invite friends and family to use all 6 seats to use the space on the train to the best advantage The ticket price is £8 per adult and £9 for children (under16 years) making our Santa Special a great family and friends festive treat for everyone to enjoy. For instance, a family of 2 adults and 2 children plus grandma and grandad comes to just £50.

Have a large family or lots of friends that want to meet Santa? No problem, just book more compartments and make a real party of it!

*Babes in arms do not count as one of the 6 in a compartment. If you want your child under 3 to have a present then you must buy a ticket for them.
