Departing Station: Stanhope

All aboard for a magical journey through the Weardale countryside this Christmas!

Four trains a day will depart from a festively decorated 'Santahope' Station at 1030, 1240, 1450 and 1700 (except for Christmas Eve when only the 1030 and 1240 services will operate).

The journey will take approximately an hour and you will be accompanied throughout by Santa’s elves and our team.


Meet Santa and Mrs Claus with every child receiving a gift from Santa!


The whole experience will last approximately 2 hours with the opportunity to visit the 'Story Train' and participate in Christmas activities.

Booking Information

Children under the age of two may sit on a parent or guardian's lap, therefore do not require their own seat and will not be guaranteed one.

Tickets are sold individually. Whilst Weardale Railway Limited will make every effort to sit families and groups together, there may be occasions where we are unable to accommodate this.

For all enquiries regarding the Christmas trains, please send an e-mail to

For more information please click on the 'Book Tickets' button.

Christmas trains are operated by Weardale Railway Limited on behalf of The Auckland Project and supported by volunteers of the Weardale Railway Trust.
