Santa by Steam

Event Date: 2nd December 2017- 24th December 2017

Times: Selected Dates


This festive season book a visit to meet Santa with a difference.

When he’s not driving the sleigh with Rudolph and the rest of the reindeer, Father Christmas travels by steam train!

Gather family and friends and join us in December for a journey with the elves to visit Santa’s grotto. Arrive at Bodmin General Station for mince pies and seasonal drinks whilst Liskeard Band play carols on the platform, before you board for a one hour return journey on a steam hauled train. During the trip you’ll visit Santa, with plenty of time for a photo, and gifts for each child. Make Christmas memories in your very own Bodmin & Wenford Railway Christmas Story.
