What are the Santa Specials?
Enjoy a magical Christmas journey aboard a traditional steam-hauled train!
Sit back and relax as your train steams non-stop from Sheringham up the whole length of the line to Holt. Get into the festive spirit and make merry with complimentary onboard refreshments served to your table – mince pies and mulled cider for adults and gingerbread and hot chocolate for every child! There are festive children’s activity packs too, plus entertainers and balloon modellers who will stroll through the train spending time in each carriage for part of the journey.
Your journey will break at Holt as the engine switches ends, giving you the chance to hop off and take photographs with the historic locomotive or to visit the onboard bar.
On the return journey, the train will stop at Weybourne Station where you will make your way through an enchanted Christmas Tree Kingdom with a magical seasonal theme, a snowy model railway and Santa’s friendly helpers before you meet Father Christmas himself who will present every child with a special, wrapped gift before you rejoin the train for the short journey back to Sheringham.
The whole experience lasts approximately 1 hour and 45 minutes from the time your train departs Sheringham to arriving back at the station.
The Santa Specials are designed for a family audience – bookings from all-adult parties will not be accepted.
