Steam into Christmas and help Santa find his missing reindeer!

Kids, there’s been a disaster, Santa’s reindeer have all escaped and are lost. You know that he needs them to deliver all the presents on Christmas Eve.

Santa needs your help! 

Can you help him find them? Explore the unique collection of Great Western Railway steam locomotives, carriages, wagons, buildings and small artefacts at the 21 acre museum set around the original 1932 engine shed whilst you locate all of the reindeer stations.

You’ll all receive a special passport and a stocking as you enter and as a reward, at each reindeer station, you’ll receive a small gift. Your visit will culminate with a visit to  Santa in the giant toy workshop where he’ll hear what you want to get for Christmas and you’ll get to choose your own gift from the selection on offer. Your entry ticket will also include unlimited train rides on the main demonstration line.

Gates open at 9.30am and you will need to book a specific arrival time as space on the trains is limited. You will receive a boarding pass confirming your itinerary on arrival. You should allow around 2 to 3 hours for your Steam Into Christmas experience but are welcome to stay longer if you wish – the Centre closes at 4.00pm.
