Your tickets allow you to travel on board the steam train throughout the day and include a cream tea served on board the buffet coach.
Experience a Magical Christmas Train Ride Through the Forest!
Visit the Dean Forest Railway this Christmas for your chance to ride behind a real steam engine with Santa and his helpers on board — no queues for a grotto here!
Each child will receive an age-related gift, and each adult will receive a mince pie and a miniature to help keep warm!
Our cafe will be offering seasonal refreshments all day. Our shop is well stocked with toys and gifts for both young and old. Plenty of stocking filler ideas!
