Let Ribble Steam Railway & Museum bring even more happiness and entertainment to your seasonal celebrations.

Create warm and magical memories with one of our Santa Special Steam experiences. The perfect opportunity for a family get together, sprinkled with a generous helping of festive fun, excitement and laughter.

Snuggle up with your loved ones in your warm, steam-heated carriage. Watch eyes light up as Father Christmas visits you in your seat to hand each child their very own Christmas gift. Light seasonal refreshments on the train are included and Mrs Ribble’s Tea Room will be open for extra drinks and goodies.

Tickets include access to our festively trimmed museum and there will be live music and you might even spot the odd elf or two!

Things You Need To Know
• If you require wheelchair access please contact us prior to making your booking.

• Please arrive around 30 minutes before the departure time of your booked train to ensure that you have time to board comfortably.

• Ensure you check in at the desk on arrival.

• There are no working toilets on the train so please make use of the facilities in the shop, baby changing also available. You will be on the train for around 40 mins.

• Prams can be left inside the museum, at the top of the ramp near the platform, as we don’t have room for them on the train.

• If you need to know anything during your visit just ask on of our friendly members of staff who will be only too pleased to help you have a great day.

• DOGS: Although we normally welcome your four legged friends, as the Santa Specials are so busy and noisy we politely request that you leave your dogs at home on this occasion. This is for the comfort of everyone, including your pets.

• E-Tickets will be sent by email in early November. Any postal tickets will be sent out by the middle of November. Please check your ‘spam’ folder before calling if you cannot locate them, as they often sneak in there!

Tickets are non-refundable and changes are not permitted. No refunds will be made for cancellations or non-arrivals.

PLEASE NOTE: Santa Special’s MUST be booked in advance …
