Santa Specials


Thank you for considering booking tickets for one of our Santa Special trains, we’d love to welcome you on one of our trains this Christmas!

Once onboard our festive trains the whistle will sound and you’ll depart on your fifty minute train ride. Whilst you’re travelling, you’ll enjoy a mince pie or festive biscuit and Santa will pass through the train saying hello to everyone. Then, when you return to Bitton Station each family group will meet Santa again and all good boys and girls will receive a present from him too! There will also be the chance for your family group to take photographs and create those special festive memories.

This year, the present will be in the form of a bespoke Avon Valley Railway reindeer-themed plush toy. This will be offered to all children regardless of age (it’s suitable from birth). We’ve had some great feedback from our passengers over the last couple of years about our bespoke plush presents so Santa is really looking forward to sharing this years’ present with everyone.

We’ve found that our passengers still seem to prefer being sat in separate compartments or table areas, so we’ll continue doing this again this year. To book, simply choose the date and time you wish to travel and select one of the available compartments (seating up to 8 people) or tables (seating up to 4 people). Then, select the different ticket types for the people travelling with you and ‘empty seat for any you don’t need. And, if you book seven or more seats we’ll offer you a 7.5% discount on all the seats purchased, so why not bring grandparents or other family members with you and make the most of seeing Santa!

Finally, you’ll be pleased to know that the festive Christmas donkeys will be returning once again and you’ll be able to see these on the lawn at Bitton Station, either before or after you’ve travelled on the train.

We very much look forward to welcoming you to our Santa Specials!
