The Polar Express™ Tram Ride Returns to Devon this Christmas!

The Polar Express™ is coming to Seaton Tramway on selected dates through November & December! Families can take a once in a lifetime trip on a magical tram ride to Santa’s home at the North Pole in one of the specially decorated single deck tramcars. Passengers are encouraged to travel in their favourite pyjamas whilst they enjoy a cup of hot chocolate, a delicious treat and admire the awesome lights of the North Pole.

Embark on a journey around the North Pole and meet the elves with their elf show in their workshop and discover whether you have been naughty or nice in the naughty detector. Indulge in delicious freshly prepared hot food & drink, including wonderful mulled wine.  All passengers will visit Santa’s home and receive the first gift of Christmas from the big man himself. Upon the return journey you will be able to enjoy singing along to Christmas carols. For the grown-up kids too, this is a trip down memory lane to a traditional Christmas of old.
