Chug your way to a magical Christmas with a journey on the Isle of Wight Steam Railway this festive season. The Santa Specials have got it all, from the chance to meet Santa himself in his grotto, to a Christmas market and a fairground ride for the kids – and that’s all in addition to the exciting steam train journey through some of the island’s most scenic landscape.
Santa sets up camp at Havenstreet for the Christmas period, and the station transforms into a winter wonderland worthy of a film set. Children are welcome to explore his grotto before meeting the man in red himself, and there’s a gift for every child. There are light refreshments for the kids and a mince pie and tipple for the grown ups, and every station along the route will be decorated to make each journey a festive one.
Now, we’re sure you’ll understand that Rudolph and the rest of the reindeer need their rest before Christmas Eve, but Santa’s friendly alpacas will be on hand to greet visitors so make sure you say hello during your visit.
Santa Specials run on 5th, 6th, 12th, 13th, 19th - 24th December from Havenstreet.
