A magical, memorable treat for your class this Christmas.

We have really special School Santa Specials this year. Take part in our Christmas craft, find all the Stephenson Snowmen who are hiding around the building, and, as well as learning a bit about George Stephenson, there are of course, lots of engines to explore.

Your visit will culminate with a 3.5 mile heritage train ride along our restored urban railway. Santa will be making a special visit to the train, giving out a small gift to all those lucky children on board. He'll also be collecting last minute lists which he will take back to the North Pole so his elves can get working on building those toys.
