Santa Specials

Come and see Santa in his own Steam Train.

Visit the Dean Forest Railway this Christmas or your chance to ride behind a real steam engine with Santa and his helpers on board - no queues for a grotto here!!

Each child will receive an age related gift and each adult will receive a mince pie and a miniature to help keep warm!

Our cafe will be offering seasonal refreshments all day. Our shop is well stocked with toys and gifts for both young and old.  Plenty of stocking filler ideas!

All seating is allocated, and you will receive a ticket via email with you seating allocation after booking. Please note that the allocations are done manually, so there will be a delay between your booking and receiving your seating allocation.

Please note that under 2s do not need to be booked for and will travel for free but do not receive a present nor do they have a seat allocated. We regret that there is no wheelchair access on these trains.
