If you’re visiting the Lakes between Christmas and New Year, get the family booked on a Ravenglass and Eskdale Railway Winter Warmer Train.

Climb aboard one of their decoration-bedecked trains and enjoy a glass of non-alcoholic punch and a mince pie to fortify you for the journey on the oldest and longest narrow-gauge railway in England.

The station will be all dressed up for the occasion too, so there’ll be plenty of Christmas photo opportunities. Running between Boxing Day and New Year’s Day, tickets for the Winter Warmer Trains sell out fast so get yours soon.

Join the festive fun at Ravenglass Railway.

The 40-minute journey to Dalegarth is filled with excitement as you make your way up the valley to Dalegarth Grotto where Santa Claus and his team of helpers are on hand to welcome you including Stu Di Doo the magician and one of his festive puppets.

Children will be called up to meet Santa and receive a gift from the big man himself. Children will also receive an activity pack and some festive refreshments.

Grownups are not without favour and will receive a festive snack and drink whilst the train waits at Dalegarth station for the return journey back to Ravenglass.

There is also an option to add a festive feast to this very special day out, take a look. Please note dogs are not permitted at this event (except assistance dogs).
