With a Nutcrackers help, this winter you will board the Polar Express and journey deep into the Enchanted woods of Audley End to visit Santa’s winter workshop! Together, with her very helpful elves, Mother Christmas is ensuring all the toys are ready for Christmas eve while Santa comes to visit you in your carriage with a gift for every child.  

When departing the train, you will be greeted by Snowberry the frost fairy who will guide you through our illuminated woodland walk, home to our picture perfect bauble tree, to meet our reindeer keepers Logan and Thorn. Here you can create your own reindeer feed bags to leave out for Rudolph on Christmas eve!  

The magic doesn’t end there, Hazel the postal elf will give you everything you need to write your Christmas wish list to Santa, including a fast track stamp and the location of our on site special-delivery letterbox where you can post your letters. Be sure to look out for our miniature fairies and their Christmas festivities on the way too!  

Holly the Christmas fairy will be waiting in her tipi tent to read you all an interactive Christmas story; don’t forget to let off steam on our Adventure Play Area too. 

Delicious food and drink will be available at the Café to refresh even the hungriest elves. Our Christmas characters do love seeing you kitted out in your winter finery – so make sure you wrap up warm! The later trains in the day benefit from enjoying the site adorned with lights. 

Included in the ticket price: 

Train ride to meet Father Christmas, Mother Christmas and their Elves, Gift for every Child, Letter Writing, Illuminated Christmas walk to the Reindeer Food Factory, Holly the Christmas Fairy Storytelling Show and Adventure Play Area.
