Pendle Village Christmas Express and Santa's Grotto

Choo Choo.  Calling all families and little ones for a Christmas adventure like no other.  The popular Santa’s grotto is back and, for 2023, has the most enchanting way to celebrate the festive season with your children, the Pendle Village Christmas Express.

Discover a world of wonder and excitement with your very own golden ticket to board a magical Midnight Train.  Children are invited to wear their cosiest pyjamas and dressing gowns, as they take a journey through a winter wonderland that Christmas dreams are made of.  But do wrap up warm.  You are going to the North Pole afterall.

​​​​​​Please note that the Pendle Village Christmas Express isn’t a train ride, but a mesmerising walk-through journey, filled with the magic and wonder of Christmas. 

Approx 30 minute experience with elves to guide you through the activities.
Fun, festive activities including writing your letter to Santa.
​​​​​​Hop into the Candy Cane Carriage and enjoy sweet treats.  
Meet Santa.  Sit with the jolly old man himself, share your Christmas wishes and receive a apecial gift.
Let it snow.  Journey onwards to the Arctic and step inside our snow globe, where it’s always snowing, of course.
Take a seat on Santa’s sleigh.
Fantastic photo opportunities throughout.  Capture those special memories.
Expect flashing lights and smoke machines.
