 Santa Xmas Special, 12:50 Sunday 18th December 2022. - 10 seats now available

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas!

Treat the family to an enchanting voyage through the magical Irwell Valley, kick start your Christmas on one of our famous Santa Specials! There’s more family friendly fun, colourful characters and seasonal surprises than you can fit under a Christmas tree.

Immerse yourself into the festive atmosphere as you take a steam train trip with a host of happy elves and of course, Father Christmas!

Upon arrival you will make your way through the beautifully decorated winter wonderland at Bury Station, meet Mrs Claus and keep an eye open for the singing polar bears and the talking magic tree! You will then board your steam train for a journey up to Rawtenstall Station and back again. During the approximately 80-minute trip you will get a chance to meet your favourite Christmas characters, and have a good old sing along with the band.

While you travel, Santa himself will visit your carriage with a gift for every little one (selected by age band), there will be plenty of time to have a chat with him and take a Santa selfie or two. There will also be mince pies and a festive tipple or soft drink for every grown up in the party and an additional fruit shoot, chocolates and activity pack for the children.

What’s New for 2022!

  • Upgraded Winter Wonderland walkthrough at Bury Station featuring photogenic scenes, singing polar bears and a magical talking tree.
  • Interactions with special Christmas Characters including old favourites like the Elves and new classics like Mrs Clause and our very own Ice Princess.
  • Enhanced visit from Santa with extra time to talk and take photographs.
  • High quality children’s activity books for the little ones.
  • Traditional Brass Band back on board.

Each year around 40,000 people enjoy a Santa Specials experience, Here's what a few of them have to say**:

  • "An absolutely brilliant start to Christmas  with our grandchildren"
  • "Great for a Christmas treat for the kids. We went on the train and my son saw santa and got a pressie - loved it."
  • "The children and adults loved every minute. We will definitely be back next year. Well done to everyone involved."
  • "Booked this trip on the Santa Express early because I knew how popular it gets. Perfect Christmas day out for the children."
