Just a few short minutes from Preston is one of the best Christmas attractions of the year – the Santa Steam Special experience with Ribble Steam Railways. It’s a family friendly and fun experience which is designed for children of all ages and adults too. The Santa Steam Special experiences are organised for every weekend, both days, between 5th and 6th December and 19th and 20th December with one extra last journey planned for 21st December.
Ribble Steam Railways organise this fun Santa-themed trip each Christmas and it’s hugely popular so the sooner you book the better. The starting point for all journeys is at the Ribble Steam Railways centre and museum which is just 3 miles out of Preston city centre, less than 10 minutes’ drive in your Easirent hire car and there are plenty of festive and fun things to see and do whilst you wait for your train ride.
The museum has a fun festive trim and there will also be plenty of Christmas-themed gifts on sale. There is also a miniature railway which little ones can climb aboard and the café will be offering seasonal snacks such as mince pies to munch on whilst waiting for your ride. Once it’s your turn to hop on the Santa Express you and your little ones can enjoy seasonal refreshments and a warm and cosy ride within the steam-heated train carriages. Father Christmas visits each individual child in person as the train chugs along and all little ones will receive a personal gift.
