Our Ho Ho Ho Santa Train is NEW for 2023 & is our first Christmas Train Service to depart from our Peterborough Station - this service will be hauled by our HST Intercity 125 the newest diesel train in our heritage fleet.

So we are so pleased to launch this new Santa Service.

The Ho Ho Ho Santa Trains all depart from Peterborough Nene Valley Station

Please park in Railworld's Car Park a small fee will be chargeable

The Ho Ho Ho Santa Train Departure Dates: Thursday 7th, Friday 8th, Thursday 14th and Friday 15th December

Train Departure Times: 17:00 or 19:00 please ensure you arrive at least 20 mins before your train's departure time to ensure you have enough time to get checked in, the train cannot be held for any latecomers. 

Tickets for this service are sold on a per person basis at £20 per person over the age of 1. Under 1's will need to sit on an adult's lap and their ticket price is £5. They will receive a gift from Santa within their ticket price.

Your Ho Ho Ho Christmas experience will start 15 mins before your train departure time. So please arrive in plenty of time to park and make your way to the Platform at our Peterborough Station. Our on train buffet will be open for you to purchase any refreshments you would like whilst on board the train. Plus at Overton Station there will be a few places to purchase refreshments and some festive items to add to the atmosphere of the evening.  The Ho Ho Ho Santa Experience is an outdoor event when you're not on board the train, so please wrap up warm. On board the train there will also be a buffet car that you can purchase from (please be aware the train ride each way is only approximately 15 minutes). When you arrive on the Platform you will be greeted by 2 festive characters who will also join you for the full experience, they might even get you to join them in a Christmas sing-a-long.

Important to note: 

This year's gift from Santa will be a bespoke soft toy, for ages birth to 8 years of age (4 different designs), ages 9 to 15 will receive a different gift (they of course can select to have a soft toy), along the arts & craft theme. All Christmas gifts will not be gift wrapped this year; Santa is trying his best to reduce his carbon footprint.

An admin fee will be charged for any booking amendments made after purchase.
