Santa Specials 2021

Santa has let us know that in spite of the difficulties, he will be at the Milton of Crathes again this year for the festive season.  He’ll be there every Saturday and Sunday from 27th November up to and including Christmas Eve.

On arrival at the railway, visitors will receive their drinks on the platform to take on a steam train ride down the line.  On their return, the children will receive their presents from Santa in a grotto where there will also be festive singing.

All seating on the train will be socially distanced and is allocated at the time of booking. The whole Santa experience will last approximately 30 - 45 minutes.

Tickets are only available by online booking in advance.  There will be no tickets available over the counter from the station shop, by email, phone or snail mail.

The wearing of masks will be in accordance with the regulations and advice applicable at the time.   If the event has to be cancelled for any reason, ticket costs will be refunded, with the exception of the non-refundable booking fee.

Please note that a £5 admin fee applies for any changes to bookings and cancellations.
