Santa Steam ex Risboro + 2 OFF

Santa's Steam Specials were enjoyed by thousands of happy families joining his trains at Chinnor last year and in 2018 we now have a limited number of seats available to join Santa's trains at Princes Risborough too!

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 - on these first two weekends of Santa trains 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 he will provide quality presents for all fare-paying children and young people between the ages of 1-15 yrs. Everyone 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 Princes Risborough to Chinnor and back takes 75 minutes (includes 25 minutes stop at Chinnor whilst we prepare the steam loco). There is a shop, small tearoom and toilets at Chinnor station. But we don't want you to miss Santa and we certainly don't want to leave anyone behind - Santa says a punctual departure will be necessary!
