Bluebell Railway - Santa Special

13th December 2014, 11:15 - 17:00

Beavers & Cubs

Take a ride on a steam engine and meet Santa -

Meeting at 11:15 on Saturday 13th December, we will travel to the Bluebell Railway via minibus. We will aim to be back in Foots Cray for 17:00.

The Santa Special trains depart Sheffield Park station for a ten mile round trip to the beautifully restored Horsted Keynes station with special Dickensian themed activities to enjoy. 

Santa himself will be on board the train where he will present every child with a special Christmas gift and a festive treat.

Upon arrival at Horsted Keynes station, Santa will make his way to platform 1 where you can take your own photographs with him and your family in his special cabin. There are other Christmas activities to enjoy including Victorian street entertainers, fairground stalls (20p per go),

You will be at Horsted Keynes for approximately 40 minutes before your train departs for Sheffield Park where there will be  an opportunity to take a look around our museum, visit the engine shed, have a bite to eat in the Bessemer Arms, or do that extra Christmas shopping in our fantastic gift and souvenir shop. 

Children can also take a ride on the traditional fairground "juvenile" roundabout in the Sheffield Park station forecourt. 

All trains running for Santa Specials will be hauled by one of our vintage steam locomotives
