Watercress Line Santa Special

Board the Watercress Line for a unforgettable festive journey with Santa.

What a perfect way to start Christmas, with a magical ride on a steam train along the beautiful Watercress Line.

While travelling along the Watercress Line, Santa and his helpers will visit each child at their seat spending time for a chat and to deliver a special Christmas present. Everyone can join in with Christmas Carols to get in the festive spirit.

Refreshments will be available for all and there will be a glass of wine and mince pies for the adults!

Santa Specials depart from either Alresford or Alton and last for approximately one hour. Please visit the official website for full details.
