Event: Santa Specials
Location: Yeovil Junction BA22 9UU

The Santa Specials at the Yeovil Railway Centre are an enjoyable experience for everyone from ages 1 to 100. You start your visit with a train ride behind one of our steam locomotives, we have a choice of a heritage carriage or a brake van (with a real coal fire) to ride in. Our track is about 1/3rd mile long, so the train ride is full of fun for the children but not long enough for them to get bored. Visitors then make their way to the ex GWR Transfer Shed, where Santa will be ready in his grotto. The cafe is also located inside the Transfer Shed, and your ticket entitles you to free tea, coffee or squash and a mince pie for the adults and biscuit for the children, just show the tickets at the cafe counter. We should have one or more model railway layouts running, and from the balcony in the Transfer Shed snow and bubble machines provide a truly exciting experience for the little ones. A selection of items from our shop will be available from tables in the Transfer Shed. Visits to view our full range of shop items are possible by asking one of the volunteers at the shop tables. We take the safety of visitors very seriously. Parents/Grandparents/Guardians are asked to please keep your children with you at all times. Do not trespass on the railway and only cross our track on the designated board crossing. Please ensure your children take care when playing in the snow or bubble area! We want you and your children to have a wonderful Santa experience with us. We appreciate all comments, good or bad, please feel free to make an entry in our visitors book. If any visitor wishes to raise any matters on the day, please do not hesitate to speak to one of our volunteers. Trains run from 11am to 3pm (at 11am, 11.20am, 11.40am, 12noon, 2pm, 2.20pm, 2.40pm, and 3pm) - and if your preferred time cannot be met, you will be allocated the nearest available time which will be noted on the tickets sent in response to your booking.
