Halloween Train 2018
Halloween is coming to… North Yorkshire Moors Railway!
Join us on board the Halloween Train, which will take you and your family on a spooky journey this Halloween!
Children and their scaredy-cat grown ups will love meeting our silly, spectacular and sometimes spooky cast of storytellers. Hear their ghoulish tales, join in with their scary songs and be prepared for moments of magic. This will be an evening of Steam & Scream!
Santa Claus is coming to the… North Yorkshire Moors Railway!
Santa Special Dates departing from Pickering Station: 1 & 2, 8 & 9, 15 & 16 and 22 & 23 December 2018
Join Santa and his special helpers on a magical adventure aboard the Santa Express, which will take you on a festive journey you won’t forget!
Departing from Pickering Station, the Santa Express brings Christmas to life and gives children the chance to meet the legendary man himself on board the train. They will be able to tell him what they would like to open on Christmas morning – providing they’ve managed to keep themselves off the naughty list this year!
- Santa will visit you in your seat and see if you’ve been good or bad?

York Christmas Festival 2018
15 November 2018 – 23 December 2018
There’s lots going on in the centre of York over Christmas (even if there wasn’t, Christmas in York is so pretty it’s always worth a visit!). St Nicholas Fair, the York Christmas market runs from the 15th of November 2018 to the 23rd of December 2018, with lots of food, festivities and a lovely Christmassy atmosphere to soak up.
Christmas at Castle Howard is a spectacle like no other.
