Details

Enjoy a magical journey by steam train to Santa’s grotto at Plas Nadolig

A special ‘Letter to Santa’ will be sent to you when you book and can be posted at Wharf station when you arrive.
At Plas Nadolig you will meet Santa and be able to take photographs. Make sure you visit Mrs Claus who has been busy baking mince pies and festive cookies – there will be a little tipple for the adults too!

The donkeys would love a pat and a cuddle before you get back into your compartment where Santa’s mischievous elves will have left a present-shaped surprise waiting on your seat!
Add a festive hamper* to enjoy on the trip, and even a bottle of fizz!

The train departs Tywyn Wharf station at: 10:00am, 11.45am, 1:30pm and 3.15pm

EARLY BOOKING IS RECOMMENDED
For your safety, travel is in a private compartment of up to 6 people (if your group is larger than 6 please let us know when you book so that we
can ensure your compartments are adjacent). Face masks should be worn at all times except in your compartment.


Please note:

We are changing our normal format to ensure we are covid compliant. Santa will be seen but obviously from a safe distance and there will be a route to follow. You will have to stay in the carriage until you are called to see Santa. We will make it fun and festive!

If we do have to cancel for any reason, or you are unable to travel due to any local restrictions, we will offer a 100% refund up to 24hrs in advance. Book with confidence!
*Adult Hamper (£8.50) – sandwich, salad bowl, fresh savoury bite, crisps, bottle of water and a home-made mince pie.
Childs Hamper (£4.50) – 1/2 sandwich, pom bears, fruit juice and freshly made cookie
