All aboard for Santa trains on the Severn Valley Railway

Starting this Saturday, the Severn Valley Railway’s hugely popular Santa trains will be departing Kidderminster on a magical steam train journey to Arley.

Each group taking part has a private compartment or reserved table, and after arriving at Arley Station, passengers disembark to watch a fabulous new-for-2023 pantomime show. Visitor Engagement Manager, Lewis Maddox, said:
“Christmas is a magical time of year on the Railway! I’ve seen a preview of the panto show and it’s set to be great family fun for both adults and children. It’s one not to be missed, as Christmas at the SVR is all about making precious memories!”
Following fun and laughter at the panto show, its’ all aboard the Santa train for the return journey to Kidderminster. Complimentary hot drinks and sweet treats for everyone are included in the ticket price, and each child receives a quality gift and a free ticket to come back to the attraction next year.

Services run at weekends up to Christmas Eve, and on Friday 22 December. For more information and to buy tickets, visit or call 01562 757900.
