    This festive season, step aboard the steam-heated carriages of our Santa Specials & be transported to the magical North Pole.

    Meet Santa & his jolly helpers inside their cosy grotto filled with sacks full of presents for the good girls & boys.

    Whilst waiting to see Santa, adults will be treated to a mince pie and festive tipple and children will enjoy biscuits and juice in our heated marquee. Santa will also be bringing some of his cheeky elves along to help keep everyone entertained!

    Children will have an opportunity to write their letters to Santa, complete activity sheets, make a Christmas wish upon our Wishing Tree, make up a bag of special reindeer food to take home with them and have a run around the outdoor adventure playground.

    Our Tea Room and barbeque will be open for you to purchase freshly-made, locally-sourced refreshments.

    You can also, start or finish your Christmas experience with a FREE whizz around the duck pond miniature railway.

    REMEMBER! You are permitted to take photographs & videos in our grotto at no additional charge, so charge up those batteries.

    On selected Friday evenings throughout December, we will be hosting our ever-popular Twilight Santa Specials. As the sun sets in the South Pennine Foothills, join us for a magical experience aboard our floodlit, steam heated train to Shelley and see the surroundings light up as you travel before meeting Santa in his cosy grotto.

    All Christmas services last for approximately two hours and are return trips.
