Come along to visit Santa in his Magical Grotto and then take a train ride along the Northampton & Lamport Railway from Pitsford and Brampton station.

As there are a large number of children (and adults) who want to meet Santa, he has asked us to make appointments for your visit. These start at 10:30 then at 30 minute intervals until 15:30.

There will be a frequent train service operating each day so after having seen Santa there will be a minimum delay before you can board the train, enjoy the ride and your refreshments.

Every child will receive a present from Santa, a soft drink and biscuits. Every adult will receive a glass of sherry (or soft drink if preferred) and a mince pie

Every year we are asked loads of questions from our visitors to help ensure you have a great experience here are some of the main questions we get asked.

Q. Is there parking?

There is parking on site. Pitsford and Brampton Station is behind the Brampton Halt pub. To avoid parking in the pub car park follow the road to the back of the pub and head straight up through the gates. The car park is then round to the left.  See our How to Find Us page for directions.

Q. Is the time for the train ride or Santa’s Grotto?

The time you booked the tickets are for Santa’s Grotto. On arrival you will be directed up to Santa’s Grotto where you will meet Santa (after a short queue). The Trains run regularly from 11:00. We aim to have the train leave the station around every half hour from then. So there is no need to rush.

Q. I booked online. Where are my tickets?

Don’t Panic. Print of the receipt you received from the website at purchase. This will contain all the details needed for your day. On arrival show the print out or the email on your phone and tablet and our station staff will show you the way from there.
