As the Festive Season is getting into full swing why not give the whole family an exciting treat by taking a trip on a Santa Special Train. The children get to see Santa, there’s a treat for the adults, entertainment for the whole family and all without queues. Car Parking is free too.

This special festive treat features:

  • Santa’s Grotto on your train.
  • A quality gift for every child.
  • A miniature bottle of spirits and a mince pie for every adult, delivered to your seat.
  • Pinxton Puppet Show in a heated and decorated marquee after your train journey.
  • Animatronics tableau.

For an even bigger treat check out the Super Santas, which include a picnic tea delivered to your reserved table.

Tickets are very popular and strictly limited, so please book early to avoid disappointment.

Planning your Visit to the Santa Specials

We recommend that you arrive at Butterley Station at least 30 minutes before your train departs to allow time for parking and to look around before you board your train. Shelter is provided by a large heated and decorated marquee with an animatronics display. This is also the venue for the Pinxton Puppet Show after your train ride. Refreshments are available from Butterley Tea Room and the on train buffet car. Please note that it is not possible to visit the Swanwick Junction Museum complex during Santa Specials.
