Visit Santa this Christmas and ride the railway to Santa's grotto - The perfect experience for families with children. Now in its 33rd year and more popular than ever!!! Travel by Steam Hauled Train from Pant Station to Santa's Grotto in Pontsticill where everyone will receive a present from Father Christmas.

All Children and Babies receive a present from Santa. Mulled Wine and Mince Pies are served to the Adults.

Please note that this year we will be doing things a little different. Our aim is to protect our passengers as well as our staff and of course Santa!!! This is why we are putting some additional measures in place:

1- When seeing Santa in his Grotto please note only 2 adults will be allowed to go in with the Child/children at any one time.
2- Seats on the train will be allocated by us.
3- Please adhere to any signage
4- You must wear mask at all times whilst on the train, unless you are except.

*** Please do not visit the Railway if you have any covid 19 symptoms. ***

*If you or a member of your family is feeling a bit under the weather but still want to visit, may we advise you to please take a lateral flow test, these are free to order from the NHS website and do not take long

Advance booking essential. Book online here
Car Parking Free. Tea Rooms and Gift Shop open.
