Participatory Event

Visitors can enjoy a festive family day out on the Spa Valley Santa Special Trains.  The steam engine will take you on a relaxing journey through the picturesque Kent and Sussex countryside and there will be a chance to see Santa Claus from the comfort of your seat aboard the train.

The experience lasts 2 hours; trains start at Eridge going to Tunbridge Wells West where you may alight and take look at the Victorian Engine Shed before your return trip.

The ticket price covers:
- A return Steam and Heritage Diesel train ride from Eridge to Tunbridge Wells West;
- Seeing Father Christmas with a present for each child;
- A chance to have a photo with Father Christmas; and
- A mince pie for everyone (pre-boxed) on the train.

Looking for an extra-special memory?
Then book the Premium Santa Special trip which for a little extra cost you get your own compartment, an additional snack box and a Christmas cracker per person. Pay the one fee and 6 people in total can share the private compartment.


Money raised from ticket sales is used to keep the heritage railway open for all to enjoy.  The railway and the Santa Specials are run by dedicated and hardworking volunteers.
