Santa Special

Santa and his elves invite you to join them on the Welsh Highland Railway. Pantomime style fun for all. These trains are fun for adults and children alike. Santa and his elves pass through the train giving out presents to the children during the journey - with plenty of laughter and jokes along the way! At Tan-y-Bwlch or Waunfawr, there’s a chance to stretch your legs and take photographs with Santa and his helpers. We can’t promise snow on the ground, but we’re keeping our fingers crossed! Adults enjoy a glass of sherry and a mince pie on the ride back.
