Your vintage steam train awaits at the beautifully decorated Kidderminster Station, ready to take you on an adventure... time to steam into Christmas!

Everyone will receive a drink and a seasonal sweet treat as you settle down in your own private compartment, before steaming through delightfully decorated stations to Arley. Plus, NEW FOR 2021, all adults will receive a free collectable travel mug!

Jump off the train to be entertained in our ALL-NEW professional Christmas show, as Jingle and Jangle return for more festive fun. You'll hopefully catch a glimpse of Saint Nick himself, as he prepares for the biggest night of the year.
