Santa Claus is coming to… North Yorkshire Moors Railway!

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 Grosmont 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!

Brand new for 2016, passengers travelling from Grosmont will be able to experience an extra Christmas cracker, the chance to meet a small herd of real baby reindeer that will be visiting the station while Santa temporarily swaps reindeer travel for that of a steam train.

  • Age appropriate present for each child.
  • One hour journey on board the Santa Express.
  • Activity sheet and Santa Hat for each child.
  • Mince Pie, Hot Drink & Alcoholic Tipple for each adult.
  • Experience Santa’s on-board Grotto.

Tickets for the Santa Specials cost £20 each and pre-booking is essential to guarantee the time slot and date you want.
