Santa Specials on the Spa Valley Railway

Sat 8th and Sun 9th, Sat 15th and Sun 16th, Tues 20th -Mon 24th December

Christmas at the Spa Valley Railway starts at Eridge Station where visitors are met with the smell of hot chestnuts and a roaring coal fire in the festively decorated waiting room.

You will board your train to the strains of traditional Christmas music, then sit back and enjoy a ride through the winter countryside to Tunbridge Wells West. During the journey Santa will visit every child on board the train with a gift for all those good boys and girls so make sure you’re well behaved!

Keep an eye out at our stations (including Groombridge) for our ‘Spot the Snowman’ competition, for those who spot all the snowmen you will be entered into a prize draw to win a family ticket to use during 2019.

The train journey to Tunbridge Wells West will last around 40-45 minutes where upon arrival Santa will disembark from the train to make his way into our Victorian engine shed where his sleigh can be found. You will have approximately 40 minutes at Tunbridge Wells West where you can sit with Santa in his sleigh for photos, view our spectacular Christmas tree, watch the model trains go round (subject to a small 50p charge), view traditional Christmas shows in our small cinema and also play on the Victorian penny machines.

Prior to departure you will be able to visit our well stocked shop and pick up those all-important Christmas gifts, the return journey to Eridge will take approximately 20 minutes. 

Please book well in advance as these trains are very popular!
