Another Sunday and another family train ride. This one with Nanny and Grandad and on Santa's Special Steam Train! A winning formular if ever there was one.
We booked in advance and arrived early enough to have a bite to eat for lunch first. Then a short queue before boarding the steam train, supplied with blankets for chilly laps and then we were off!
The train steamed past festive cuddly toys and displays, through tunnels and onto Santa's Grotto. There we were welcomed by dancing elfs, Mrs Claus who was going down past the train giving out sweets and then the big man himself.
Santa walked along the platform chatting to all the children and gave them each a small gift. The monkeys loved this and both got a cuddly toy dog. The experience was then over once the train returned to the station. It was all very festive, very well done and the Christmas music playing made it all the more magical. As did the jollyness of the staff.
Another great Santa experience worth a visit Christmas 2015!
Merry Christmas everyone. Have a great time. I'm off to spend some time with my family.
