During your train ride you will enjoy:
There will be our usual entertainer on board and activities for the children to enjoy before and after the excitement of meeting Santa in his magical grotto.
Why not try this lovely Christmas experience, all in an atmospheric early evening light.
Santa is busy preparing to meet you all and chat with the children to see if they have been good this year (we know you have kids!) and gift them all a lovely present. The round trip takes approximately one and a half hours, during which time all the family can experience the unique sights, sounds and smells that come with riding a wonderful steam train.
Once the Santa Specials train departs, each child in turn will be invited to visit Santa in his grotto (which is in a very special, decorated carriage of the train. Prepare to be enchanted!). While this is happening, Santas helpers will bring around festive offerings for everyone to eat and drink and during your journey an entertainer will pass through the train to add to your fun and enjoyment. There will also be colouring and activites for the children to do.
Only when Santa has seen every child will the train return to Cranmore Station.
ALL SANTA SPECIALS NEED TO BE PRE-BOOKED.
*PLEASE NOTE* YOU WILL NOT BE ALLOCATED A SPECIFIC SEAT OR CARRIAGE TO RIDE THE SANTA SPECIAL. WE RUN ON A FIRST COME, FIRST SERVED BASIS. WE RECOMMEND THAT IF YOU WOULD LIKE THE OPPORTUNITY TO SIT IN A PARTICULAR CARRIAGE, OR HAVE A GROUP THAT WOULD LIKE TO SIT TOGETHER, PLEASE ARRIVE WITHIN GOOD TIME OF YOUR TRAIN, SO SANTA'S HELPERS CAN DO THEIR BEST TO HELP YOU WITH YOUR SEATING.
Under 1 year old cost £5.50 on all trains.
