Santa Steam Specials
Ho-ho-ho! Come and see Santa on the Avon Valley Railway! Every child wants to see Father
at The Avon Valley Railway
Christmas at Christmas time, but busy shops with long queues full of children waiting up to a couple
of hours can quickly drain you of your Christmas cheer.
The Avon Valley Railway has a far more attractive and original idea. Every weekend from late November to Christmas Eve, Father Christmas will be on the steam train at the Avon Valley Railway. Accompanied by his helpers he will make his way along the train, stopping to talk to all the children and, providing they have been good, give them each a quality present. Parents are not neglected as everyone will also receive a delicious mince pie or festive biscuit.
The six mile trip on the Santa Special lasts approximately one hour. During this time Santa, accompanied by his helpers, makes his way along the train, stopping to talk to all the children and, providing they have been good, gives them each a quality present. Parents are not neglected as everyone will also receive a delicious mince pie or festive biscuit.
Wherever possible, we ask that customers do not bring buggies or push chairs on their journey – space is limited on board the train and we cannot guarantee the security of items left at Bitton Station.
The railway's Buffet will be open each day, offering a selection of hot and cold food and drinks. The station souvenir shop - specialising in all things 'Thomas' - will also be open, making it the ideal place for you to buy Christmas presents large and small.
Please note : To send tickets Standard Mail there is a charge of £2 per order. This charge is to cover postage and administration costs as Avon Valley Railway is a registered charity. We thank you for your understanding and continued support.
