Santa Specials at the Avon Valley Railway
Tel: +44 (0)1179325538
Enjoy a mince pie or festive biscuit onboard the train as you travel the line. When you return to Bitton Station, you’ll meet Santa and have the chance to take family photographs with him. All good boys and girls will receive a present from him too!
Like last year, he’s going to have to make some changes to the gifts he gives out as the virus (and now supply issues caused by Brexit) is causing no end of problems for his elves in Lapland. They’re having real problems getting hold of the things they need to make presents for all the little boys and girls. Therefore, specifically for this year, he’ll be giving a gift suitable for all ages 1 – 7 which will be in the form of a high quality Avon Valley Railway ‘Station Master’ plush teddy bear with a couple of presents suitable for the youngest infant visitors as well as older boys and girls aged 8+.
The festive Christmas donkeys will be returning once again and you’ll be able to see these on the lawn at Bitton Station, either before or after you’ve travelled on the train. Once you’ve left the elves will then be working hard cleaning and sanitising the train before the next passengers arrive.
Avon Valley Railway will continue with doing a few things differently to help stop the spread of the virus. There’ll be hand sanitiser available throughout your visit and social distancing. However, that won't stop you having a great time and enjoy that festive feeling. Christmas comes just once a year after all!
If you’ve visited Avon Valley Railway recently, you’ll know that they’ve changed the way they’re selling tickets with each family group being seated in their own compartment or area with table seating of up to eight people, separate from other passengers. To book, simply choose the date and time you wish to travel and select one of the available compartments. Then, select the different ticket types for the people travelling with you and ‘seat not required’ for any you don’t need. That just stops anyone else from being able to sit with you on the day to help maintain social distancing. If you book six or more seats, you'll be offered a 10% discount on all the seats purchased, so why not bring grandparents or other family members with you and make the most of seeing Santa!
