North Yorkshire Moors Railway: When is Santa Claus coming to NYMR, how can I book a ticket and what are the ticket prices?

The North Yorkshire Moors Railway will be hosting a number of Santa Claus Specials across December dates with departures from Pickering and Grosmont.

Santa Claus and his elves will be visiting passengers at either Pickering or Grosmont station before embarking on a festive adventure aboard the Santa Express organised by North Yorkshire Moors Railway.

This magical experience will see Santa and his elves pass through the heritage carriages, which will allow children to meet the legend himself on board the train. Mr Claus will also be giving each child a present onboard, as long as they are on the ‘nice list’ this year.
