Santa Specials 2023




Santa Is Coming to Summerfields!!

We are pleased to tell you that Santa is once again able to visit Summerfields Miniature Railways this year. We look forward to seeing friends, old and new, for a train ride to see him in his grotto this coming December.

It is important to note that applications must be made using the booking form (available to download on the right) and your payment must be received before your places are reserved. Train bookings will be allocated on a “first come - first served” basis, so please don’t delay if you wish to book.

Applications will be processed in arrival order. If your selected date/session is completely full we will endeavour to offer the closest alternative available (if any), and advise you accordingly.

You will be sent your actual train departure time approximately one week before the date of travel.

On the Day:

On arrival, and after parking your car, you should go to the check-in near the Station Buffet at Haynes End. Trains depart every fifteen minutes on their journey to Santa’s Grotto and must depart on time to maintain the schedule, so it is important that you are checked in FIFTEEN minutes before your train's departure time.

You will then be called to the platform shortly before your train is due to leave and will be boarded in readiness for a prompt departure.

At the Grotto you will disembark your train and be greeted by the Elves. You will then meet with Santa in his grotto before boarding a train for your return journey to Haynes End. Whilst with Santa, the children will receive a present appropriate to their age and gender.

After returning to Haynes End you will be provided with refreshments served  at our Station Buffet. These will consist of a mince pie with tea, coffee or mulled wine for adults, and a fairy cake and soft drink for the children.


Prices for 2023 are £7.00 per adult and £16.00 for each child.



YOU may cancel up to and including October 31st and we will refund your payment less any transaction charges incurred by us. After that date no refund will be provided as we will have committed those funds, but we will make the children's presents available for you to collect along with a voucher for a train ride during the 2024 Public Running season. 

If the weather prevents us from running any Santa train we will follow the same procedure for the collection of presents etc. as outlined above.
