Experience the Magic of the Polar Express on this 2 day weekend break plus some time in Durham for Christmas shopping.
The Polar Express & Durham Christmas Shopping
Join us for this exciting magical weekend breakaway to experience The Polar Express Train ride on the Wensleydale Railway!
Crack out your best pyjamas and get ready to immerse yourself in the sights, sounds and intrigue of this classic children's tale. With sleigh bells ringing in the distance and the tell-tale whistle of the steam train approaching the festively decorated station, the excitement will continue to build as you board the train and leave the station. Watch scenes from the film come to life as the dancing chefs and waiters serve cookies and hot chocolate for all! Settle down to hear the story and join in with the Christmas carols as you approach the North Pole - but don't get too distracted and miss the beautiful Christmas Tree, not to mention the main man himself, Santa and his sleigh.
Keep your festive cheer topped up with a visit to Durham for a spot of Christmas shopping. Pick up some last minute gifts or get inspired while you're there!
