Closed Today 28/11/2021 Due to Weather. Sorry



5th, 12th and 19th December
12:00-1600  No appointments - just come along.

Santa will be here for the three Sundays in December 2021. We have had to make some changes to try to avoid overcrowding and to create space between people wherever possible. Please note the following:-
All tickets will be sold at the Bottom Station. Anyone arriving at the Top Station will be able to ride down to the bottom, where they will be asked to join the queue for tickets.
Tickets cannot be bought in advance and will Not be available online.
Child ride tram, visit Santa and gift £6
Accompanying adults £2.50 (normal price)
As in previous years, there may be a queue but we will try to keep this as short as possible.

We are only able to open Sundays from 12:00-16:00. (More volunteers needed).
The revamped sweet shop is now open and has your favourites.


Things to remember-
1) Please pay by contactless card as this greatly simplifies transactions for all of us, If you must use cash, ensure you have the correct money.

2) Please respect social distancing at all times.
3) Follow the directions given by our volunteers.
4) We can only accommodate a limited number of passengers on the trams and this may mean some groups might be required to travel separately. Our volunteers will direct you.
N.B. We will not tolerate any abuse. All our volunteers come along because they have an interest in keeping this bit of history working. Nobody gets paid.

Although most restrictions have now been lifted it is only reasonable to err on the side of caution. Relevant precautions will remain in place.

Let's all have an enjoyable day, so please be guided by our volunteers.

Essential maintenance continued during the lockdowns, to ensure safety at all times. The beginning of October saw us have part two of our biannual Safety Inspection and no faults were found.
All the plans for our 125th anniversary have obviously had to be ditched, but all-being-well we are hoping to be able to put on some sort of commemoration in the future.

We are really pleased to announce that Santa will be back in his Grotto this year.
