Please note the below before booking:

Tickets are non-transferable and non-refundable

Seat allocation will begin in October - no tickets will be emailed or posted before then

Please ensure you have the correct date, time and total number in your party when booking. Changes after submission will be charged a £10 admin fee per booking

You will have a choice of either an e-ticket that you print at home or a printed ticket posted to the order address

All seats on the Santa Specials are numbered and allocated (like theatre tickets)

Once seats are allocated, if additional tickets are bought we cannot guarantee we will be able to add extras to the party but will do our best

If you wish to sit with another party, please make the booking in one name

Seats are in blocks of four around a table - if your party is larger, seats will be split across the aisle so that you can all see each other. Please be aware, in this situation, you may be sharing that table with another party

Please note gifts are only given to children when booking you will be asked for the ages of the child(ren) so that we can give the correct age-appropriate gift

If you are bringing an adult with additional needs who would like a gift from Santa rather than the adult refreshments, please choose an appropriate age ticket for a suitable gift and let us know when you take your seats

Babies under the age of 1 year will be sat on the lap of an accompanying adult and will receive a gift from Santa

Unfortunately, we are unable to offer our carer concession on Santa Specials

Assistance dogs only

Wheelchair passengers can be accommodated in a special carriage. Please call reservations on 01962 733810 as it is necessary to pre-book tickets in this carriage

Parking information and before you arrive:

Please do not bring pushchairs or prams into the station (due to footbridges and carriage aisles we can not accommodate these)
