Santa Specials

A Christmas visit to the Bluebell Railway is a magical experience!

Enjoy a journey through the Sussex countryside in all its winter splendour. Santa and his elves will be on board with a present and chocolate treat for all the children (he won’t forget the grown-ups, there’s a mince pie for them!).

Sit back and enjoy the trip to Horsted Keynes station where you will find…

  • A Victorian Fairground – tokens for rides/attractions will be available to purchase for 20p at the station.
  • A Christmas Pantry – serving hot & cold drinks and festive snacks

Your Santa Special experience will last for between 1½ and 2 hours & includes your return train ride and time at Horsted Keynes station.

Trains depart from Sheffield Park Station or East Grinstead station.

Pre-booking is essential. You will not be able to buy tickets on the day

  • Why not enjoy a Christmas carvery while you’re here? The perfect way to satisfy your appetite before or after meeting Santa!
