Join Santa and his special helpers on a magical adventure aboard the Santa Express, which will take you on a festive journey you won’t forget!

Departing from Pickering Station, the Santa Specials bring Christmas to life and give children the chance to meet the legendary man himself in his grotto on board the train. They will be able to tell him what they would like to open on Christmas morning - providing they’ve managed to keep themselves off the naughty list this year!

Passengers departing from Pickering, will also have the chance to take selfies with Santa’s ‘real life’ reindeers. The best #reindeerselfie will win a family ticket (2 adults & 2 children) for our 2018 season and a goody bag with Thomas the Tank Engine goodies worth £100. More information.

•Approx. 75 minute journey on board the Santa Express.
•Christmas Activity Bag (Crayons, Activity Sheet, Selfie Frame and Selfie Props).
