Santa will be making his annual visit to Apedale once again. Your party will board the train at the platform adjacent to the Apedale Heritage Centre. During the 15-minute round trip, Santa will meet the train and come back to the Heritage Centre. Then, the children can meet Santa in his grotto. You can wait for your train in the warmth of the Apedale Heritage Centre and their café, and maybe enjoy a snack or meal (Santa tells us he likes the oatcakes).
