Lavender Line Santa Specials With New Online Booking For 2015

It is with great excitement that we can now announce the official dates for our 2015 Santa special season which is set to get underway at the end of November.

Christmas is fast approaching and before you know it the dark nights are here and the festive season is upon us for yet another year, but how about this year extra special with a special visit to the Lavender Line for our Santa specials. We offer something very different to many other places which include both Adults and children.

Make this years visit to Santa extra special, with unlimited train rides throughout the day on one of our steam or diesel hauled trains followed by a fresh mince pie, tea or coffee for the adults and of course a present given personally by Santa for the children.

This year we will be running a combination of both steam and diesel trains which will be departing from platform 2. Our resident steam engine Empress will be hauling the steam services with our very own diesel Valiant or Class 09 09025 hauling the diesel services.

The Cinders buffet will greet you on arrival with a warming log fire and cosy atmosphere as you plan your special day out.
