December events: Meet Santa on a steam train

Swanage, Dorset

Take a trip on Swanage Railway in the run up to Christmas and get the chance to meet Santa. It's fun for all the family and each child gets their own present!

Christmas is that time of year when a very special visitor jumps on board one of Swanage Railway’s trains and hands out presents to all the lucky girls and boys.

You'll hop on the train at Swanage Station before travelling through the frosty Purbeck countryside, passing the majestic and very picturesque ruins of Corfe Castle along the way. During your 1-hour journey, you'll also get to enjoy the festive entertainment and refreshments that will be served to you by Santa’s helpers.
