Entrance Price see web site Per person

Dates: 2021 Santa Specials run on November 27-28, plus December 4, 5, 11, 12 and 18-24.

Treat the whole family to a magical trip through a winter wonderland as you kick start your Christmas on one of our Santa Specials. There’s a stocking full of familyfriendly surprises, magical characters and more.

Immerse yourself in the festive atmosphere as you take a steam train trip with a host of happy elves and of course, the man himself, Father Christmas! It’s an amazing treat for girls and boys who have been good this year and for ‘grown-ups’ who want to enjoy the nostalgia of steam.

Start your experience with a walk through the beautifully decorated Bury Bolton Street Station, enchantingly lit with countless fairy lights and decked with over 200 Christmas trees. Step out of this gorgeous grotto onto the platform and you’ll see a scene right off of a Christmas card as a steam train waits for you to climb aboard.

Settle into your comfy carriage and continue your adventure up the East Lancs Railway. Santa’s happy helpers keep you and your little ones entertained as your train makes its way to Rawtenstall and back. Before the trip ends, St Nick himself will pay you a special visit and make sure every little one receives a gift (well behaved parents also get a mince pie and a festive tipple).

Don’t miss your chance to enjoy this spellbinding Christmas experience – book your tickets now.
