Santa by Steam

Event Date: 1st December 2018- 24th December 2018

Times: Selected Dates

This festive season book your ticket to meet Santa - with a difference!

Gather your family and friends and take a journey with the railway elves to visit Santa’s grotto. Arrive at Bodmin General Station for mince pies, seasonal drinks and carols on the platform, before climbing aboard for an hour-long return journey on a beautiful steam hauled train. During the trip you’ll visit Santa, with plenty of time for a photo, and gifts for each child. When he’s not driving the sleigh with Rudolph and the rest of the reindeer, Father Christmas travels by steam train!

To help make even more Christmases extra special, Santa will be travelling on two relaxed (Autism friendly) trains, and four wheelchair accessible trains at Bodmin & Wenford Railway this December.

Make Christmas memories in your very own Bodmin & Wenford Railway Christmas story.
