Santa Specials                         (non-Thomas weekend)

See Father Christmas in a 'Grotto with a Difference' - On a Steam Train!!

All new upgraded presents (in conjunction with Father Christmas!)

The magic starts the moment you arrive! You will be shown to your reserved seats on the steam train, which will take you up and down our 1/3 mile length of track whilst you wait for Father Christmas, who will make his way along the train visiting all the children. When he comes to your carriage, he will come and join you, and one of his elves will pull your gift from his huge toy sack!

When you have seen Father Christmas, and the train has pulled back in at the platform, you can take the children to see the live children's show, have their face painted, enjoy your free refreshments in our visitor centre (or make the most of our cafe refreshments), and admire the beautifully restored engines on display. You can also let the children do some colouring, make their own badges and have a 'tattoo' on their hand! Sadly during the winter, we are unable to open the museum, miniature steam railway and model railway, due to health and safety for our visitors and staff/volunteers.
