6th, 12th/13th & 19th/20th

Join us in a short ride on a Santa Special steam train to Toyland, and meet Father Christmas!

All children receive a present from Santa, and adults get mulled wine and a mince pie.

Booking is essential - details to follow.

How it works


You book tickets in advance using the link above. On the day, the steam train takes you the short distance (about 400m) from the main station at Becconsall to Toyland.

There you meet Santa and the children receive a present, while an Elf or Snowman borrows your phone to record the happy event.

Then it's back to Becconsall on the train for mince pies and mulled wine. Tea and coffee are also available, and our famous burger van will be in operation.

Note that this is an open-air event, with open-sided coaches, so wrap up warm!
