Santa Specials on the Sittingbourne and Kemsley Light Railway

Trains will depart from Sittingbourne Viaduct station at 11am, 12pm, 2pm & 3pm on 4/5, 11/12, 19/20 December 2021 (Saturday 18th is sold out). We will be using the compartment coaches so please wrap up warm.

The fare includes the round trip from Sittingbourne Viaduct station, departing on the hour.

After the 15 minute journey to Kemsley Down, Father Christmas leads passengers to the Footplate Café where adults receive their seasonal refreshments. Children will be called to visit Santa’s Grotto which is a short walk away. One adult must accompany a child visiting Santa – the child will be able to choose a gift from a selection of quality toys.

There will be some time afterwards to venture out and look around Kemsley Down where we have a shop and garden railway. This year, the museum will be closed as it will be used as Santa’s Grotto.

The train will return to Sittingbourne Viaduct station to complete the entire trip within two hours.
