Not for the fainthearted is our Halloween “Tramtastic Spooktacular” Evening event on 31st October, where our most ‘gruesome’ drivers take passengers to meet Melchior Rattenbury, the mad butcher, and his band of Zombies at the haunted Victorian station in Colyton. Both events include horrible Halloween games and ‘revolting’ refreshments in the Garden Room and ‘Baddie Bags’ for the children.
The Polar Express™ is once again coming to Seaton Tramway on selected dates between 1 - 24th December! Families will enjoy the magical tram ride to Santa’s home at the North Pole in one of the specially decorated single deck tramcars. Listen to and sing along with all the songs, be served hot chocolate and cookies by the dancing chefs and meet Santa and his happy bunch of elves. Each child will receive a special gift from Santa and you're welcome to wear your pyjamas on board just like the movie! This event is very popular, so please book early to avoid disappointment.
