Take a magical starlight journey on the Santa Special train then pop to the North Pole to see Santa!

Santa by Starlight at The East Somerset Railway
As if visiting Santa wasn't exciting enough, seeing him under starlight gives that added sparkle to your festive fun here at the East Somerset Railway. The Starlight train departs from Cranmore at 4:30 each day. On arrival, our young guests will receive a goody bag (containing festive themed colouring sheets, crayons and a Santa based family quiz for you all to enjoy). Then, your party will embark our Special Santa steam train for a delightful 30 minute trip to the North Pole. At the end of your journey, you will make your way across the line to the North Pole Station. Santa's elves will be there to greet you. Whilst you wait to see Santa there will be festive refreshments of mulled wine and warming hotdogs for you to enjoy. Then you get your special time in Santa's grotto where you can tell him how good you've been and receive your gift (if you have been good, of course!).
