Festive fun for all the family

Festive fun for all the family is in store at the scenic Watercress Line, with a special visit from Santa and his jolly helpers getting everyone into the festive spirit.

‘Santa Specials’ train journeys will be taking place throughout December, offering a truly magical experience for children and adults alike.

As you travel along the historic Mid Hants Railway in a festive traditional train carriage, Santa and his jolly helpers visit you in your seat with a special gift.

White wine and mince pies will be available for adults, with soft drinks on offer for the children.

The ‘Santa Specials’ are a one-hour round trip, departing from either Alresford or Alton, on 5, 6, 12, 13 and 19-24 December. Tickets are priced at £18 per person, and £19 on 24 December.

Plus, on Saturday 26 and Sunday 27 December, there’s a chance to experience the atmosphere of a World War Two Christmas at ‘Christmas Leave’. Join civilian and military re-enactors and witness the relief and joy of returning home from war, with song, dance, steam and seasonal merriment.

Tickets for Christmas Leave are £17 for adults, £9 for children (two to 16) and free for children under two.
