Keighley & Worth Valley Railway Santa Specials – the original and best.
As soon as you board our Santa Special, it feels like Christmas with specially decorated coaches and festive music to get you into the mood. You will be greeted by your steward, who will check your tickets and show you to your seat, before explaining what will happen during the journey (and where to find the bar!)
Join the Santa Special at Oxenhope, Haworth or Keighley Stations for a ten-mile return journey on our steam train, lasting around an hour. Experience nostalgia and the magic of Christmas in our specially decorated coaches, with festive music to get you into the mood. Santa and his pixies visit each child during the journey, delivering presents and the grown-ups are served with a mince pie and seasonal drink: the perfect way for you and your family to start the Christmas season.
All our Santa Specials have a buffet car serving real-ale, hot and cold drinks and a variety of snacks, with entertainers on board to make sure you get the most out of your day. Your ticket also allows you free travel on our connecting diesel services. Our hugely popular Pixies Pantry Cafe and Winter Wonderland display will be available in Oxenhope Exhibition Shed throughout the Santa Special period.
You may book to travel from Keighley, Haworth or Oxenhope stations at the times below. Whichever station you choose, your Santa Special train will take you on a return journey over the whole railway.
