Santa Specials

A Magical Day Out 2016

Imagine the excitement of a Steam Train journey to Santaland!

Our magical Santa Special services run on various dates and times in the weeks before Christmas, details of which are below. They depart from Sheringham station and take passengers through some of Norfolk's most beautiful winter scenery whilst the adults are served sherry and mince pies and the children receive a chocolate and a soft drink.

Santa is waiting by his open fire at Weybourne Station (specially transformed into Santaland!), ready to give all children a warm welcome, both young and old. Each infant (under 1 year) and child (1 year to 14 years) will receive an appropriate present for their age.

After a period of time looking around the station, passengers reboard the train for their journey back to Sheringham. With professional entertainers, quality presents and of course a ride behind a steam train, Christmas turns into a wonderful experience on the North Norfolk Railway's unique Santa Specials.

New for this Year! If you come to ride aboard our Santa Express services this year, you can explore Christmas Craft Stalls set up in the Waiting Room at Santa Land (Weybourne)! Please note however, they won't be able to take card payments so cash or cheque only please!

Please note that Santa Special trains travel between Sheringham and Weybourne and return only. They do not travel to or from Holt. Passengers must travel back to Sheringham on the same train that they arrived on.

Full terms and conditions of booking are available on request.
