Sheringham Station,
NR26 8RA


Our magical Santa Special services run in the weeks before Christmas. They depart from Sheringham station and take passengers through some of Norfolk's most beautiful winter scenery whilst the adults are served sherry and mince pies, children get a soft drink and chocolate treat.
Santa is waiting by his open fire at Santaland, ready to meet every boy and girl both young and old. Each infant (under 1 year) and child (1 year to 14 years) will receive an appropriate present for their age.

After a period of time looking around the station, passengers reboard the train for their journey back to Sheringham. With professional entertainers, quality presents and of course a ride behind a steam train, Christmas turns into a wonderful experience on the North Norfolk Railway's unique Santa Specials.
