Santa Specials at GWSR

Don’t forget to book your tickets for the Santa Specials at GWSR.  There will be Steam Specials and Diesel Specials on various dates throughout December.

Santa Steam Special

From Cheltenham Racecourse Station by steam train all the way to Winchcombe (or the North Pole!) through the long tunnel, and visit Santa and his elves in his grotto. When you arrive at Winchcombe the elves will meet you off the train, and make sure you have plenty of time to visit Santa and receive excellent presents especially selected by him for each age group before your train returns to Cheltenham.

Commencing 30 November to 24 December at various times.  Check for dates at GWSR

A great festive spirit on the fourteen mile round trip.
Activity sheet and crayons on the train.
Walk through a Christmas fairyland and visit Santa in his grotto. Lots of twinkling lights and great presents.
Complimentary mince pies, hot and cold drinks, biscuits and fruit in the station coffee shop.
Top quality presents for the children.
Babies under 1 year old travel free and receive a nominal present only.

The Santa experience lasts about an hour and three quarters (but allow longer in case of unexpected delays).

Santa Railcar Special

From Toddington station by an early 1960’s diesel rail car with Santa and his young elves on board the train, spending lots of time sitting with each family. The number of tickets sold on these trains will be limited, so you will have plenty of space for your family, and there is the added excitement of seeing Santa coming down the train talking to everyone and giving out excellent presents.

Commencing 7 to 22 December at various times.  Check for dates at GWSR
