Join us for a magical steam train ride through the countryside for a festive experience giving you treasured memories with your children for years to come!
Your journey will start with a visit to our welcome marquee at Bishops Lydeard, this will be a waiting area whilst your service is being prepared.
You will then board your dedicated steam service, which will be magically adorned with festive cheer. Tickets for this service will be sold in tables of 4 and compartments which can take a maximum of 6 people. This is in line with Government Guidelines.
On board, you will find your catering and gifts already waiting for you at your designated table or compartment.

You will be able to take socially distant photographs and enjoy a chat with Santa who is very excited to meet you all.
It will be a requirement for all passengers to wear a mask on the service, we encourage children to also wear a mask where possible to ensure maximum safety for all.
