We recommend arriving 1 hour before your show time to ride on the train first.  We open 1 hour before the first show and close an hour after the last show.  Suitable outdoor clothing is advised for woodland walks and Treetop Adventure.  The cafe will be open all day and the log burner will be lit!

Our standard price is £13.50 per person.  Toddlers aged 1-2,  are £9 per person, and the Christmas Treasure Hunt is £1.90. these can be shared if needed. There are no booking fees however you book! PRICES HELD FOR ANOTHER YEAR!

2017 dates are – 2nd and 3rd, 9th and 10th, 16th and 17th, and daily 22nd to 24th December.  The time you book for is the time you go in to our Theatre to see Father Christmas come down the chimney. We recommend arriving an hour before this. You can stay as long as you like and ride the train as much as you like. If you would like to make a group booking for a school, playgroup, brownie or cub pack etc then please call us to discuss additional dates
