A Christmas visit to the Bluebell Railway is a magical experience. Come along and enjoy a journey through the Sussex countryside, in all its winter splendour! Santa will be on board with a present and a chocolate treat for all children and he won’t forget the grown-ups-there will be a mince pie for them.

Sit back and enjoy the trip to Horsted Keynes where you will find

  • A Victorian fairground
  • Christmas pantry on platform 3
  • Opportunity to have pictures taken with Santa.
  • Special ‘Elf House’ for our younger visitors
  • NEW for 2017-As Santa uses the train for these journeys, his Reindeer can have a rest and will be happy to meet everyone. They will be in the paddock adjacent to the platform at Horsted Keynes and there will be ample time to meet them.

Departures are from either Sheffield Park Station or East Grinstead Station. Your Santa Special experience lasts for around one and a half hours and booking is essential. All bookings need to be paid for in advance.
