Event Series Event Series: Santa Specials

Santa Specials

This festive season, step aboard one of our Santa Specials & be transported to a Winter Wonderland. Nothing stops Santa visiting Moors Valley Railway! It may be slightly different this year, but we will still enjoy a wonderful, safe and exciting festive experience with all the traditional sights, sounds and aromas of Christmas!

  • Join the train at Lakeside Station
  • Get into the mood with some Christmas music while having your tickets checked
  • Board your train in your own carriage for a safe and enjoyable journey
  • Visit Santa in his grotto with photo opportunities
  • Collect your special present from Santa (adults and children receive a present)
  • Mince pies, mulled wine, tea, coffee and refreshments for adults and children
  • Rejoin your train to return to Lakeside

The whole experience can take up to 1 hour

Ticket price is £22.50 per person.

(Babies in arms go free but will not receive a present unless a ticket is purchased for them)

Advance booking is essential  – the Santa Specials WILL sell out!

Please Note

Seats aboard the Santa Specials are allocated. Any tickets booked together on one order will be seated together with no social distancing. We therefore insist that bookings are made for no more than six people or two households maximum.

These services feature illuminations and flashing lights at the stations and in the grotto. Please consider this when making bookings for those with sensitivities to flashing lights.

We anticipate that face coverings MAY need to be worn on the Santa trains (unless you are under 11 or have an exemption), in the station facilities & inside the Grotto. We will, of course, be led by the Government & Public Health England guidance.
