Your Santa Steam experience starts with a welcome from our station staff and badge team - entertainment is provided at busy weekends. This is followed by an exciting visit to Santa's log cabin where each child receives a special present from the old gentleman himself. Following a short wait families then join our steam hauled, decorated train for a fun-filled ride to Peterborough and return.
During the journey our train staff serve the children with a drink and chocolates. Parents and other adults are not forgotten with a mince pie and either an alcoholic miniature, wine or a hot drink. Santa walks through the train to see the children, providing an opportunity to take photographs and to wish everyone the compliments of the season
Choose how you would like to travel on the Santas with three options. Remember… No matter which service you choose, classic, first or premium
It’s a party atmosphere within our classic class carriages. Like all visitors to Santa steam the children will have visited Santa’s grotto and got their presents before everybody sits down for the exciting steam train trip. Drinks and a mince pie will be served to the adults and the children get a drink, a cracker and some sweet treats too (it’s spoiling them we know but after all it is Christmas) When it seems it can’t get any more exciting Santa pops by to say hello once again
