Santa Specials

December 2018

Book Now

Climb aboard the Kirklees Light Railway’s Santa Specials and travel in steam heated carriages to the North Pole (aka Shelley Station).

Santa will be waiting in his cosy grotto with sacks full of presents for the children.

Whilst waiting to see Santa, adults will be treated to a mince pie and festive tipple and children will enjoy biscuits and juice in our heated marquee.  Santa will also be bringing one of his cheeky elves along to help keep everyone entertained!

Children will have an opportunity to write their letters to Santa, complete activity and colouring sheets and, if they want to brave the cold, have a run around the outdoor adventure playground.

Our Tea Room and barbeque will be open for you to purchase freshly-made, locally-sourced refreshments.

REMEMBER! You are permitted to take photographs or videos in our grotto at no additional charge, so charge up those batteries!

On selected Friday evenings throughout December, we will be hosting our ever-popular Twilight Santa Specials.

As the sun sets in the South Pennine Foothills, join us for a magical experience aboard our floodlit, steam heated train to Shelley and see the surroundings light up as you travel.

All Christmas services last for approximately two hours and are return trips.
