Ride the Polar Express this Christmas

Date Posted: 17/07/2012

The Weardale Railway in Stanhope, County Durham is offering groups a Polar Express™ train experience this winter.

The Polar Express™ will make a round-trip to a special ‘North Pole’ just for passengers, where Santa and his elves will climb aboard for the return journey.

Based on the 1985 children’s novel by Chris Van Allsburg, the journey promises to bring the story alive for passenger, with golden tickets, dancing chefs delivering hot chocolate and cookies, and silver bells for children.

The story is read aloud during the journey which is approximately a one-hour round-trip, departing at either 5pm or 7:30pm from Stanhope train station.

Ride the Polar Express™ on selected dates between 16th November to the 29th December. Tickets are on sale now.
