Tickets on our steam train are selling out fast this year!

Tickets are £9.50 per person to include a glass of hot mulled wine and seasonal mince pie for adults. Santa gives a good quality present for children on the train so there’s no queuing. For children under one year, the price is reduced to £5. Children also get a free soft drink.
