Returning for 2019 is The Santa Express! This truly unique event books out very quickly every year and to avoid disappointment, we recommend booking your preferred date now to secure your family’s place at this extraordinary Christmas experience!

Itinerary

• Board the Santa Express at the station and enjoy an enchanting train ride through Oakfield’s magnificent woodlands to meet Santa and his special helpers. Enjoy a trip on a real train (not a tractor!), on 4.5km of narrow gauge railway via thousands of lights, installations and decorations.

• A professional photographer will be on hand to capture this precious family moment and prints will be available to purchase.

• All the boys and girls who have been good this year will receive special gifts from Santa.

• Hop back on the train to Buffers, Oakfield’s beautiful restaurant, where you may dine from our delicious festive menu, making sure to post your Christmas letter to Santa in the Post Box.

• Lots of festive activities, entertainments and seasonal refreshments will be available in Buffers, making it an event not to be missed. Visit the elf workshop, have a look around our new themed installation and have fun with the elves in the gardens.

• It is essential, when travelling on the Santa Express, that all passengers remain seated at all times, no matter how excited! All children must be well supervised by a parent or guardian, whom throughout the experience, have full responsibility for their children.
