Santa Specials 2022

Meet Santa at the Kent & East Sussex Railway



We love Christmas at the Kent and East Sussex Railway and we have been welcoming families to meet Santa on our trains for nearly 50 years!  There’s nothing quite like the pleasure of a steam train ride knowing your child will meet Santa and receive a gift, all from the comfort of your allocated seats.  Sit back, relax and enjoy the journey!

The experience for 2022 includes:

  • Steam Train Ride for 70 minute return journey
  • A complimentary refreshment pack for each family to enjoy during the journey
  • Age-appropriate presents for all children 11 and under
  • Children aged 12-15 will receive chocolates from Santa
  • Babes under 18 months of age are free of charge and receive a gift
  • Magician providing on-board entertainment
  • Free rides on the vintage gallopers on-site at Tenterden
  • Free photograph of your family group
  • Visit to the station’s Christmas model village

The main attraction, Santa himself, will be travelling on the train giving presents to your children – have your camera ready to capture that all-important moment!
