A Horsted Christmas

New for 2018!

Visit the Bluebell railway this December for a very special Christmas treat!

Travel onboard a period steam-hauled train in your own private compartment and enjoy your delicious Christmas hamper, packed full of festive goodies.

Alight at Horsted Keynes, where the sparkling fairground stall lights and music from the vintage organ create a magical atmosphere.

Why not try your hand on the Victorian fairground stalls? Can you hook a duck or splat the rat?



A visit to Father Christmas in his parlour is a must! He’ll happy to have a chat – don’t forget to collect one of the special presents he has for all the children.

Not to be left out, Mother Christmas will be busy helping little ones make lovely Christmas cards and decorate gingerbread to take home with them.


As Father Christmas is busy, his reindeer will be having a rest and building up their strength before the ‘big evening’. Why not visit them and wish them well – you might even be able to feed them their favourite snack!

And don’t miss the festive storyteller or the puppet show – fun for all the family!

All this Christmas fun is thirsty work – don’t forget to collect your complimentary mulled wine or hot chocolate from the buffet to keep you going!


This is sure to be a very popular event – so do book early!
