The Santa Express

The Santa Express


Join The Santa Express @ Hayes Garden World!...

Take a round trip to meet Santa at the North Pole, but where has Santa's train gone? Step onto the tracks and follow his long journey into our winter wonderland. Search for the golden tickets hidden along the way. Throw snowballs with the snowmen and help the penguin’s fish for food. At last Santa's train, hop onto our stationary express train for your own photo opportunity before arriving at Santa’s workshop to make Father Christmas's very own reindeer food.

Last stop meet Santa for a gift, book and photo opportunity.

Spaces are available in advance by online booking only. (Non-refundable & Non-transferable). Price is inclusive of a visit to Santa, activities along the way, a present, souvenir picture and a book to take home (book per family).


* The Santa Express @ Hayes Garden World does not involve an actual moving train ride, however there will be a life size train and carriage inside which families can hop onto for their own photo opportunities.*
