During the Christmas period we run Santa Specials for all the family here at the Midland Railway - Butterley. Santa’s grotto is on the train and the children will meet Santa during the train ride. Our Santa Special Trains start running in late November and continue throughout December.

There is a quality gift for every child. Every adult will receive a mince pie and a miniature bottle of spirits. After previous Santa Specials, The Pinxton Puppets have put on a show for our visitors.

The details of this year’s Santa Specials are now formulated as the special time of year approaches. Why not download our leaflet for the event.
