What to expect and what tickets to choose:
All aboard The Panto Express to enjoy a visit from Father Christmas, plus, enjoy a mini family pantomime, brought to you by a professional touring theatre company!

See Father Christmas in a ‘Grotto with a Difference’ – on a vintage steam train! Why queue for hours when you can sit on a steam train and wait for Santa to come to you?! You will be shown to your compartment on the steam train, and you will be taken up and down the 1/3 mile length of track whilst you wait for Father Christmas, who will be making his way along the train visiting all the children.

When he comes to you, one of his elves will pull gifts for the children from his huge toy sack! Once your train arrives back at Platform 4, make your way to the Pantomime seating at the far end of the Visitor Centre, sit back and enjoy the show!

Enjoy the festive Christmas atmosphere inside our large Visitor Centre with decorations, huge Christmas tree, festive music, plus cafe and gift shop.

Train ride approx. 25 mins; panto running time approx. 25 mins. You can stay and enjoy the cafe and gift shop etc before/after your experience.
