Sunday Adventures – Wells & Walsingham light Railway Santa Express – 17th December 

2017 is the first year that Elsa has really understood Christmas so this year we decided to go on special day out. We choose Wells & Walsingham Light Railway in Wells-Next-The-Sea. It is only down the road for us so was perfect for a relaxing afternoon enjoying Christmas activities and visiting Santa.

When we arrived we boarded the Santa Express, a little train with carriages that fit no more than 10 people in each one. You are welcomed by Santa’s Elves and Elf N Safety. They show you what carriage to sit on and really get the children excited to see Santa. We then set off to Walsingham, but half way there you see that Santa has crashed his sleigh and gone back to Wells on his Traindeer! This means travelling back to Wells to catch up with Santa.

Once back in Wells we were taken to a very christmasy themed grotto where Santa is sitting in a traindeer waiting for the children to go and tell him what they would like. This was the first time Elsa visited Santa so we were praying it was going to go well. Thankfully it did and Elsa and Cleo were both handed presents, which Elsa was very happy about!

Out of the grotto there was carriages filled with Christmas activities such a colouring and decorating baubles. All in all, it was a brilliant afternoon and Elsa absolutely loved it!
