23rd December - Sunday

Santa is coming...!

Ladies and Gentlemen, Boys and Girls, everyone hopes to see Santa at Christmas time, and at Elsecar Heritage Railway, we make this dream come true.

An annual tradition for many families, we'll welcome aboard friends old and new when this popular event returns for 2018

After leaving Elsecar Station, accompanied by his favourite helpers, Santa makes his way down the train and stops to chat to every child, and provides them with a quality wrapped present for Christmas. They will also receive a juice drink and a biscuit or chocolate.

Adults are not forgotten either during their journey, with a festive tipple from our range of minitures, along with a mince pie .
