The fare includes the roundtrip from Sittingbourne Viaduct station, departing on the hour, so please arrive at least 15 minutes early. After the 15 minute journey to Kemsley Down, Father Christmas leads passengers to the Footplate Café where adults receive their seasonal refreshments and children visit Santa’s Grotto. One adult must accompany a child visiting Santa – the child will be able to choose a gift from a selection of quality toys. There will be some time afterwards to venture out and look around Kemsley Down where we have a shop, museum and garden railway. The train will return to Sittingbourne Viaduct station to complete the entire trip within two hours.
