Much as we dislike promoting Christmas in August, we know that the Santa Specials on the North Yorkshire Moors Railway book up months in advance, so here are the details, from the NYMR:
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 and Grosmont Stations, 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!
Age appropriate present for each child.
Approx. 75 minute journey on board the Santa Express.
Christmas Activity Bag (Crayons, Activity Sheet, Selfie Frame and Selfie Props).
Mince Pie, Hot Drink & Alcoholic Tipple for each adult.
Experience Santa’s on-board Grotto.
New for 2017: Adults will be able to experience the Santa Express journey (adult only carriage, excluding present & visit to Grotto) and enjoy a mince pie, hot drink & alcoholic tipple.
Santa Specials will run on 2, 3, 9, 10, 16, 17, 19 & 20 December 2017, and bookings are now being taken. More details, including times, prices and bookings, here.
