27th November - 31st December
Make wonderful and magical memories this Christmas with the festive Steam and Lights train journey through the Isle of Purbeck countryside. A new, not to be missed pre-booked steam train experience, the steam locomotive and carriages will be covered with brightly coloured lights while the cosy steam-heated carriage interiors will be festively decorated for the one-hour evening round trip passing the historic ruins of Corfe Castle.
A memorable experience suitable for all ages, stations and key points along the line will be specially lit as the Steam and Lights train passes through in the dark. On board the train, there will be festive music synchronised to the lighting displays passing the carriage windows as well as an informative on-train commentary.
Steam and Lights trains must be booked in advance and can only be joined at Swanage Station where the brightly lit festive trains start and end their journeys. For specific dates, please visit the website.
To get to Swanage Railway, you can use the Breezer 50 from Bournemouth to get to Swanage. Alternatively, you can catch the Breezer 40 from Poole directly to Swanage.
Prices start from £50.00
