Northampton and Lamport Railway - Santa Specials
Take a train ride with Santa at the Northampton & Lamport Railway.
Unfortunately, due to social distancing requirements we have had to come to the decision to close the Grotto this year. Instead, Santa will be on the train, riding along greeting and chatting to our passengers as you travel through the Northamptonshire countryside.
We shall still be offering our normal complimentary refreshments of sherry and mince pies to the adults (soft drink alternative available) and biscuits and soft drinks for the children, onboard the train. These will need to be ordered when you make your booking so we can arrange your table ready for when you come aboard.
Due to the social distancing and hygiene requirements brought in for Covid-19, we needed to make some changes to how we sell our seats. Passengers can now book tables for up to four people, including adults, children and infants). This price is the same no matter how many are at the table (up to 4 people). Parties larger than 4 (including babies) will need to book multiple tables. Occupied tables are kept 2m apart, but this does reduce the capacity on our trains, so availability will be limited.
After your train ride, all children (up to 16 years) will collect a present from the platform before you leave to enjoy the rest of your Christmas.
We are proud to be an official AA ‘Covid-19 Confident’ attraction. This means it has been independently verified that we have in place all the necessary risk assessments, safety measures and staff training to operate safely.
Our services are being hauled by our steam loco. Whilst all efforts will be made to run a steam service, unforeseen circumstances may mean that a heritage diesel loco could have to substitute.
Pre-booking is ESSENTIAL. Book early to avoid disappointment.
28th/29th Nov and 5th/6th Dec - £55 for a table of up to 4 people
12th/13th and 19th/20th Dec - £65 for a table of up to 4 people
Parties of more than 4 will need to book multiple tables
