A Christmas visit to the Bluebell Railway is a magical experience. Come along and enjoy a journey through the Sussex countryside, in all its winter splendour! Santa will be on board with a present and a chocolate treat for all children and he won’t forget the grown-ups-there will be a mince pie for them.
Sit back and enjoy the trip to Horsted Keynes where you will find:
- A Victorian fairground
- Christmas pantry on platform 3
- Opportunity to have pictures taken with Santa
- Special ‘Elf House’ for our younger visitors
- NEW for 2017-As Santa uses the train for these journeys, his Reindeer can have a rest and will be happy to meet everyone. They will be in the paddock adjacent to the platform at Horsted Keynes and there will be ample time to meet them
