Welcome On Board

In 2017 we completed our international operation and took a record 5,800 people to the North Pole. This year The North Pole Express is going to be the biggest yet. After listening to feedback from passengers and staff there will be several improvements to the experience. Throughout December, many trips will be made into the Arctic, all hauled by a steam engine.

























Passports & Booking

Passports are your tickets to travel to the North Pole. They are available to purchase from £8.00. Booking in advance is essential. This can be completed online or by visiting Marsh Mills Buffet and paying cash or card every Sunday between 10am and 4pm.

When booking with another family or large group, please book under one booking. This is the only way to guarantee seats together. All journeys start from Marsh Mills and are return journeys on the same service.

Pay on the Day (POD) seats will only be available if there are seats not sold. Check five days before travelling and the number of pay on the day seats will be displayed below. POD seats will be able to be purchased from Marsh Mills station at 10am on the day of travel for all services. Children are aged between two and fifteen and will all receive a gift from Father Christmas’ elves. Under 2s on a lap travel free without a gift from Father Christmas. This year we have made it easier to select the package you would like:
