Bring along all your family and friends to meet Santa Claus and his little helpers who will be visiting Stephenson Railway Museum every Saturday and Sunday from 30 November up to Christmas Eve.
Your visit begins with a 3.5 mile heritage train ride along our restored urban railway. Keep your eyes peeled to be the first to spot Santa who's waiting to greet all the boys and girls who have come to see him.
Santa then makes a special visit to the train, giving out gifts to all the children on board. He'll also be collecting last minute additions to your list which he'll be taking back to the North Pole so his elves can get working on building those toys.
As well as the train ride, don’t forget to stop by our warm and welcoming museum. Take part in the Christmas craft and trail and, of course, there are also lots of engines to see inside.
PLEASE TAKE EXTRA CARE TO BOOK THE CORRECT SEATS AND TICKET TYPES FOR YOUR PARTY. There is a description for each seat stating which seat is opposite.
Your booking should consist of both child and adult tickets. We cannot accept bookings which are for all adult or all child tickets.
For advice and information regarding disabled access to the passenger carriages, please telephone the museum 0191 200 7146.
For passengers travelling on the 10.30am, 11.45am, 1.30pm or 2.45pm services, please arrive 15 minutes prior to your train journey.
For passengers travelling on the 4pm service, please arrive no later than 3.15pm to ensure you can visit the museum prior to the train ride as the cafe and activities will close once the last train has departed.
