Santa Specials Weekends

EVENT CANCELLED- updated 14/09/20

Unfortunately we have come to the very difficult decision to cancel our 2020 Santa Specials. Father Christmas is very sad to not be joining us at the railway this year, however we all feel it is the best decision to ensure everyone’s safety during this difficult time. 

We hope to see you next year!

Stay safe and well everyone

Wishing you all a very Happy Christmas.

Anyone with a current booking will receive a full refund, please allow 30 days.

 

 

Join Father Christmas and his helpers on a magical family journey aboard our ‘Santa Express’. Presents for the children, festive treat and seasonal drink for the adults, with singing and a good time for all.

Take this return journey between Haverthwaite & Lakeside, absorbing the festive spirit from all the colourful elves to experience a journey you’ll never forget!

 

The experience begins on the platform…where is Father Christmas? The elves can’t find him anywhere! Help the elves to guide Father Christmas to the station buy singing his favourite song.

After boarding your carriage Father Christmas and some of his helpers say a brief hello throughout the train- he will return later to meet every child and hopefully they have been good enough to receive a present too!

While you wait festive treats are served to the adults and Christmas songs are played.

To warm you up, ready for the big man himself, the colourful elves enter with a clatter into your carriage. With instruments for everyone and song sheets at the ready we all join in with some well loved Christmas songs really getting into the festive spirit.

In all the excitement, a tall figure in red enters the carriage, watch the children’s faces ‘light-up’, it’s Father Christmas! With the help of his elves he visits every child, delivering a handpicked present.

Take this magical journey and create memories you’ll treasure for a lifetime.

 

(Please note: special fares apply. The train will pause numerous time throughout the 3 1/2 mile journey from Haverthwaite- Lakeside, to allow time for Santa to visit every child)

 

CHRISTMAS JUMPERS AND FANCY DRESS ARE ENCOURAGED ALONG WITH LOTS OF FESTIVE SPIRIT!
