|Thank you for checking out our web site and in particular details of our Santa Specials.|
The Santa Specials at the Yeovil Railway Centre are an enjoyable experience for everyone from ages 1 to 100. You start your visit with a train ride behind one of our steam locomotives and travel in a decorated heritage carriage. Our track is about 1/3rd mile long, so the train ride is full of fun for the children but not long enough for them to get bogreen. Visitors then make their way to the ex GWR Transfer Shed, where Santa will be ready to receive his visitors. After you have concluded the visit to Santa you may wish to visit the Shop (located on the platform) where there is a large selection of books, DVDs, Model Railway items (second hand) and much more.
We take the safety of visitors very seriously. Parents/Grandparents/Guardians are asked to please keep your children with you at all times. Do not trespass on the railway and only cross our track on the designated board crossing.
We want and believe that you and your children will have a wonderful Santa experience with us. We appreciate all comments, good or bad, please feel free to make an entry in our visitors book. If any visitor wishes to raise any matters on the day, please do not hesitate to speak to one of our volunteers.
