Magical Christmas Specials

Join us for a festive steam ride to re-discover the magic of Christmas! Our popular Father Christmas specials are the starting point for many families' Christmas. Sold out last year so book early to avoid disappointment.

Don't take our word for it, here is what our lovely customers said:

'Can't believe you got the real Santa! Fantastic, see you next year!' The Shepherd family

'Will definitely return next year, may daughter said it was the best visit to see Santa ever!' - Kelly Louise

'What an amazing experience, we'll be back next year without a shadow of a doubt! - the Underwood family

Have a go at driving a loco!

Ever wanted to take the controls of a steam or diesel loco? Always played with a train set and wanted to play with a much bigger one? WWLR offers you the chance to get up close and personal with either a Garratt steam loco or our replica Wisbech Tram. From a half-day immersive session that includes steam-raising, light engine to the full rake and a fish & chips lunch to a chance to have a go around the station for as little as £25 (subject to availability). Please check our Facebook page for regular updates.
