The Enchanted Express

Our BRAND-NEW Christmas Experience from Bridgnorth Station, featuring narration by BAFTA-winning actor and star of Harry Potter, Dame Julie Walters.


Inspired by the classic poem 'Twas The Night Before Christmas, join the Mouse, the Toy Soldier, the Sugarplum Fairy, Papa Elf and Father Christmas himself, on a magical steam train journey in your very own private compartment.

As you settle down into your comfy seats (dressed in pyjamas, of course), listen to our enchanted Christmas tale and festive music as the train takes you through a winter wonderland. Along the journey, you'll meet Father Christmas and other characters, with each child receiving a quality gift.
