Santa Steam ex Chinnor + 2 OFF

Santa's Steam Specials were enjoyed by thousands of happy families last year and the Great Man's trains do fill up rather quickly nearer the day of travel!

Santa works continuously throughout the year to try and make sure everything is just right and his Chief Booking Elf has decided that Adult prices will stay the same again this year and child prices are the same for the sixth year running.

It gets even better value for money - on these first two weekends of Santa Specials there is a £2 reduction per person and so that's Adult 16+ yrs £10 (usual price £12) and Child 1-15 yrs £8 (usual price £10).

Santa and his Elves will visit every family during the journey and Santa will provide quality presents for all fare-paying children and young people between the ages of 1-15 yrs. Everyone onboard can also enjoy a spiced hot berry cordial and a mince pie served at your seat (squashes and biscuits are available as an alternative for younger children).

DEPARTURE TIMES:

Your journey from Chinnor to Princes Risborough and back takes approximately 50 minutes - which is probably just about the right journey length for the younger children.

At Princes Risborough there really isn't enough time to leave the train to explore and we certainly don't want you to miss Santa as he does his rounds (and we don't want to leave anyone behind either, as Santa says a punctual departure will be necessary!).

From the comfort of your reserved seat you may be able to view trains on the mainline passing by etc.
