The first train will depart from Market Street at 9.30am and the last train will depart from Astley Hall at 4pm. The train will be running continually throughout the day to ensure everyone gets the chance to take a ride to meet Father Christmas at Astley Hall.
The land train is fully accessible for wheelchair users but if you have a pram, please could you ensure you fold it up before boarding the train. You can arrive at Astley Hall at any time within your hourly booked time slot but please arrive at Astley Hall at least 10 minutes before the time slot is due to end. Please be aware there may be a short wait to meet Father Christmas once you arrive at Astley Hall. The Christmas presents are only suitable for children aged 1 to 12. All children under 12 months will be permitted entry free of charge but will not receive a present. If you have a child under 12 months, please still book them a ticket as indicated.
