Meet Santa Claus with Chinnor and Princes Risborough Railway


One of the most amazing things for children to do in the run up to Christmas is to take a traditional steam train ride and visit Santa’s Grotto, and of course share with Santa all the things they would like him to bring them on Christmas Day!

All trains will begin their journey at Princes Risborough Platform 4 (SatNav HP27 9DN) with Santa's Elves welcoming everyone onboard. We will then travel on Santa's steam train to see the Great Man-in-Red in an enhanced Workshop and Grotto at his North Pole station, where we will halt-a-while for refreshments and a much anticipated visit to see Santa - chat to him and take some great photos for the album - and pick-up that important very first Christmas present!

On the return journey the Elves will pass through the carriages to ensure all the young folks are pleased with their first presents. The whole experience from leaving Princes Risborough Platform 4 to arriving back again will take around one and a half hours.
