The Churnet Valley Railway Santa and Steam Experience 2020 – a brand new experience
Get your holiday off to a magical start this Christmas by coming for a journey aboard the Santa Express in Staffordshire. The Churnet Valley Railway is pleased to be welcoming a return visit from Father Christmas and his Christmas Elves during their annual pre-Christmas tour of the world, where they will once again arrive to enjoy a steam-hauled train instead of his normal reindeer-hauled sleigh – and you're all invited to join.
One of the best things to do in Staffordshire this year, Father Christmas and the Churnet Valley Railway offers the opportunity to meet Santa yourself, and all in less than an hour's drive from all of Stoke-on-Trent, Uttoxeter and Macclesfield. So, come and visit Father Christmas yourself, bring the family and join us in travelling on the Santa Express this year.
Trains depart from Froghall station on selected dates between the 21st of November and the 23rd of December, with a final opportunity on Christmas Eve before Father Christmas leaves for his annual tour of the world.
