Calling all children - both young and old! You will arrive at Queen’s Park Station, Paignton  (TQ4 6AF) for your return journey to Kingswear on the Santa Express. During your trip, you will be entertained by our two-part mini pantomime to get you in the festive spirit (part one on your outward journey and part two on your return journey - c.10 minutes in total).

The beautiful Princess Aurora, her three Fairy Godmothers, Prince Philippe and the wicked Maleficent are the stars of the show.  Aurora pricks her finger on an enchanted spinning wheel and the Fairy Godmothers will need your assistance to battle to save Princess Aurora from Maleficent’s evil spell and help Prince Philippe find her. And all so they can live happily ever after!

Father Christmas will visit you at your seat with his sleigh and band of merry helpers. Make sure you help The Fairies and perhaps their wish will be that you receive a gift from Santa (children aged 19 months up to 14 years only).

Whilst on the Santa Express you will be offered a glass of mulled wine and festive mince pie (adults only). Balloon modelling and lineside I-Spy ensure that every member of the family is involved in this truly magical experience.

This is a fully ticketed event so pre-booking is essential. If you wish to travel with another party please inform us at the time of booking and we will do our utmost to accommodate you all together. We can offer a wheelchair specific carriage that means the whole family can sit together in comfort to enjoy this unique experience. Please let us know when you book. Sorry, only guide dogs allowed. 

Please ensure you arrive at least 30 minutes before your Santa Express departure time. The Head of Steam café will be open serving tea, coffee, (fabulous!) hot chocolate and snacks. Toilets are available at the station and on the train.
