“The experience starts as you join our vintage London bus service at either Epping Underground station or in Ongar at an allocated time slot. When you arrive at North Weald Station you will get the chance to get in the spirit with something from our festive food stall whilst you listen to our live brass band! As you wait for the train perhaps you will meet our characters who will be walking around the crowds looking for the nice children to make sure that Santa will find them later. Naughty children will not be allowed to board the train!

Not long after arriving the excitement mounts as you cross the footbridge to join Santa’s fantastically festive Special Train, which will take you on a return journey via the ancient Epping Forest to Ongar. Whilst the nice children wait for Santa to find them on the train and give them a present, our entertainers will be around to keep you busy. The children will find time to write a letter for Santa or enter our drawing competition.”
