Santa Specials 2013
Credit: J.Cobb, 30/04/2000Visit Santa in his festive grotto as the train chuffs slowly through the Mendip countryside.
Santa's helpers will invite you to visit the grotto and meet Santa during the journey. Santa will chat with the children and give them a lovely present. Our five mile round trip takes approximately one and a half hours during which time, from the comfort of your seat, all the family can enjoy the splendid Mendip Hills from the old fashioned carriages and experience the unique sights, sounds and smells of a bygone age when steam was king.

As Santa's train departs each child in turn will be asked to visit the grotto, while this is happening Santa's helpers will bring mulled wine and warm mince pies for adults (tea & coffee on request) and children will be offered a drink of squash and a festive biscuit (water on request) During your journey an entertainer will pass through the train while you await your turn with Santa. There will also be a quiz and colouring for the children to do. You return to the station at Cranmore when Santa has seen all the children.
