Santa Specials 2017


Santa Specials

Santa has arrived by train at Woody Bay loaded down with presents for all the children. Meet him in his grotto and enjoy festive family fun at Woody Bay Station - but do wrap up warmly - we are 1,000 ft above sea level!

Our Santa Specials

Every child wants to see Santa at Christmas, but busy shops, long queues and hour-long waits to see Santa can quickly drain your Christmas cheer.

Enjoy an exciting two-mile return journey from Woody Bay Station to Killington Lane and back by steam train. Get into the festive spirit whilst the children experience the magic of Christmas by meeting Santa and receive an individually named present.
