Christmas might be months away, but Santa’s elves have already started putting plans in place for festive visits.
This year, COVID-19 has cast a not-so-festive feel over the proceedings, but if there’s one thing you can be sure of, Santa won’t let a global pandemic get in his way (he is a key worker, after all).
While it’s a little early to know what grotto visits might look like this year, there are already some Christmas experiences available to book.
We’ve rounded them up – some already taking bookings – in case you want to get in there early.
KIRKLEES LIGHT RAILWAY
Tickets on sale: Already on sale
Dates: 28th November – 24th December 2020
Step aboard the steam-heated carriages of our Santa Specials and be transported to the magical North Pole!
Meet Santa and his jolly helpers inside their cosy grotto filled with sacks full of presents for the good girls and boys.
All Christmas services last for approximately 1hr 30m and are return trips.
The 2020 Santa Specials have been meticulously planned to allow for social distancing on the stations, platforms, trains and grotto. This means only HALF the usual number of tickets will be available this year.
Price: from £9 – £17 depending on age of child and booking day.
Journey into the North Pole to our tree-lined home where Santa and his elves have taken up residency for the final weeks preparation before Christmas day. Come and meet our elves, help out in the crafts workshop and even make your own souvenir to take away with you. Our Head Elf will make sure you are looked after during your time there. While you are there, take the opportunity to write a postcard to Santa to make sure he knows what you want, and finally meet the big man himself!
