Santa 2019

Ride a little Yorkshire Heritage

Everyone hopes to meet Santa at Christmas time, and at Elsecar Heritage Railway, we can make this dream come true.

Come and take a ride on the Santa Specials trains, hauled by one of our heritage steam locomotives, as this popular event returns for 2019.

As soon as you board our Santa Special, it feels like Christmas with specially decorated coaches and festive music to get you into the mood.

After leaving Elsecar, accompanied by his favourite helpers, Santa makes his way down the train, stops to chat to every child,
and provides them with a quality wrapped present for Christmas.

Grown ups are not forgotten either, and they are provided with a Mince Pie and a Miniature during their 45 minute journey with Santa.
