We are really excited to be welcoming Santa again this year - and offering our Santa Special train rides.

Santa will be operating  a little differently due to the Covid - 19 restrictions, and will be setting up home in his grotto on the platform of the North Pole Station where we are able to maintain social distancing.

Please download the 'Message from Santa' at the bottom of this page for full details

You will have a 30 minute  ride  on the Santa Special train first, then cross the line to the North Pole Station  where you can visit Santa and receive a gift (if you have been good, of course!) 

When making your booking, you will be asked to specify the gender and age of each child so that Santa can choose presents accordingly. If you have a little girl who would prefer a 'boy's toy' - or visa versa, -  please reflect this in your gender choice and also consider the appropriate age choice to suit the recipients.

If you are bringing an infant (uder the age of one) we do not expect them to need their own seat on the train, so please choose the 'Adult and Infant' ticket option. 

There will be a Goody Bag for every family group to take onto the train which will contain colouring sheets, crayons and a family Santa quiz sheet. Refreshments will be served  including mulled wine and mince pies.

The Santa Special will be sanitised by Santa's Elves inbetween journeys and we will be ensuring that distancing is maintained.  Family groups of maximum 6 will be seated together and distanced from other groups.  If you are visiting in a large group, please be aware that the group will be split - although we will endeavour to seat elements of the group adjacent to one another within the guidelines.

Masks must be worn on the train as per government instructions for public transport.

Due to the current covid - 19  restrictions, you will be unable to book more than 6 spaces 

Trains run approximately hourly throught the day
