Sat 26 Nov - Sat 24 Dec Santa Specials


We will be opening bookings for 2016 in June

Please make sure you arrive an hour before the train departs, to give you time to go through Santa's Grotto

Your Santa experience starts with a welcome from our station staff and badge team - entertainment is provided at busy weekends. This is followed by an exciting visit to Santa's log cabin where each child receives a special present from the old gentleman himself.

Following a short wait families then join our steam hauled, decorated train for a 50 minute ride to Peterborough and return.

During the journey our train staff serve the children with a drink and chocolates. Parents and other adults are not forgotten with a mince pie and either an alcoholic miniature, wine or a hot drink. Santa walks through the train to see the children, providing an opportunity to take photographs and to wish everyone the compliments of the season.
