Santa Sleigh Express

Our on-train Santa Experience

December 24th - SOLD OUT

Santa Sleigh Express

Experience the magic of Christmas Eve as you travel in the company of Father Christmas on our Santa Sleigh Express.

The Santa Sleigh Expresses are now fully booked.

As magic of Christmas Eve unfolds, join the steam train at Kidderminster Station for your journey with Father Christmas and his mischievous Elves performing magic tricks to Highley. You'll have time with Santa as he meets every family on the train, handing out presents to each child and posing for photographs.

Both children and adults will receive a complimentary drink and sweet treat when they're on board, as well as a very special gift for the Christmas tree at home...

You can purchase a private compartment (maximum of 6 people) or a table in an open carriage (maximum of 4 people) on your journey to and from Highley. Please note, you do not get off the train at any intermediate stations on the journey.

Babies under 12 months may travel free of charge, but will not receive a present, and must not take up a seat. If you would like a present for your baby, they must be one of the four at a table, or one of the six in a compartment.
