**New for 2021 - Bronze, Silver and Gold Tickets**
Following on from our highly successful 2020 Santa trains, we have listened to customer feedback and launching some exciting changes this year, beginning with the introduction of Bronze, Silver and Gold tickets.
Passengers will be seated at their own table (each table seats up to 4) in one of our open plan coaches.
Once boarded, all adults will be offered a mince pie, and children will receive a packet of sweets.
During your return steam train journey, Santa will visit your group at your table to spread some festive joy and hand a small present to each child.
Prices start at £13 per person
(Note: Any bookings of up to 2 passengers MAY have to share their table with another booking of 2 passengers, dependant on covid restrictions at the time)
Groups of up to 8 will be seated in their own private compartment. All adults will receive a mince pie and wine, and children will get a packet of sweets and juice drink. During the return steam train journey, Santa will visit you in the comfort of your compartment and spend time talking to the children and handing them each a great present.
Prices start at £18 per person
(Note: Silver bookings are subject to a minimum of 4 persons)
Our flagship experience, and certainly one to remember!
As you slide open the door to your own private compartment, you will find inside the elves have been busy and left a plentiful hamper for you to enjoy, with a wide array of festive goodies, including wine, soft drinks, chocolates, mince pies, biscuits, crisps, satsumas and much more... (vegetarian, vegan & gluten free variants available - please advise when booking)
Santa will visit you in the comfort of your compartment and spend time talking to the children and handing them each a great present.
