Christmas Santa Specials at Cleethorpes Coast Light Railway

Dec 3
3rd December 2022 - 23rd December 2022

It’s the most wonderful time of the year, so why not kick off the festive season by heading down to the Cleethorpes Coast Light Railway for their famous Santa Specials!

Fun for all the family – all aboard the magical Christmas Express, immerse yourself in festive wonder as this very special train takes you on a journey to Lapland Central.

Whilst waiting to see Santa, adults can enjoy complimentary seasonal refreshments including mince pies, hot chocolate and mulled wine, with juice and biscuits for the children. There will be the chance to have a ride on Santa’s sleigh, write your letter to Santa, make your own Reindeer food and much more to keep all entertained!

Once it is your time, you will be led by our mischievous elves to the beautifully decorated Grotto to spend some quality one to one time with the man himself and receive a special gift.

Your Santa Special experience will last for approximately 1 hour and 10 minutes.
