Santa Express and Christmas Holidays - 2023 Season



Santa Express


We will be running our immensely popular Santa Express trains again in 2023. Loved by children and adults alike, expect them to operate from late November to Friday 22nd December.


Keep your eye on our website later in the year to check when we publish the dates and prices and have started selling tickets.






Mince Pie Specials


If you suffer from the post-Christmas doldrums, or get fed up with cold turkey, try a visit to our railway after all the festivities.


We will be open right through from Wednesday 27th December to Monday 1st January and you could help us finish off the last remaining mince pies.


Why not spend the day travelling between Broadway and Cheltenham Race Course Stations with us, enjoying a trip over our viaduct - 'a great favourite of Pam Ayres!'




Winter Warming Beers


Here's something a bit different after Christmas, and some more dates for your diary. Visit us to join in with our Winter Warming Beers. They will be available Friday 29 - Sunday 31st December.




A Day at the Races


Our last running day of the season (Monday, 1 January 2024) coincides with Cheltenham Racecourse's New Year's Day Race Meeting. Cheltenham is the home of jump racing.


Why not enjoy free car parking at Toddington and travel to the Races in style by train? Normal GWSR train ticket prices will apply to this day. Why not put the date in your diary now?
