Santa Specials at South Downs Light Railway

Santa Specials are a very popular feature at the South Downs Light Railway.

Passengers take a steam-hauled train to visit Santa in his grotto where he has a chat with every child. All booked children receive a quality present while adults are offered a warming drink.

The train then completes its journey back to Stopham Road Station.
