Add The Magic of Christmas Aboard The Polar Express at Weardale Railway  to your Itinerary

Discover the magic of Christmas aboard The Polar Express(TM) train ride at County Durham's Weardale Railway this winter, inspired by the hit Warner Bros film.


Children and their families are invited to discover the magic of Christmas aboard The Polar Express™ this winter. Inspired by the hit Warner Bros. film The Polar Express and book by Chris Van Allsburg, the officially licensed train rides are returning to the UK during November and December 2014.


Set to the sounds of the motion picture soundtrack, pyjama-clad passengers will relive the magic of the story and see their favourite characters come to life as they are whisked away aboard The Polar Express on a magical round trip to the North Pole. During the journey, the Conductor will punch tickets and Chefs will serve hot chocolate, just like in the film. Passengers will also enjoy a sing song and a special reading of the Van Allsburg classic. At the North Pole, Santa will board the train to greet the children and will give a special sleigh bell to all those who believe.
