Kents Cavern in Torquay. Oldest caves in the UK, the kids have to go with the elf and angel, following the trail to find Father Christmas.

Shall be watching with interest for inspiration

My all time favourite ad a kid was the Co-op santa in our home town. You used to ride to see him on a backlight sledge. I used to really believe we'd travelled somewhere magical, not that the Walls were moving lmao.

I have heard that the Coventry Co-op still does it.

We live abroad now so the last Santa we saw was in Lapland, and up the Alps in Switzerland on a Glacier mountain train.

Still can't beat a department store Santa though grin

Oh the Watercress line in Hampshire did a great Christmas train with Santa too.

Sorry all the Santas from our past are starting to blur into one...!

I do like the steam railway ones. Has anyone been to Swanage?

The Llangollen santa train is lovely and in beautiful surroundings. We went 2 years ago when there was heavy snow, which made it even more magical.

That sounds lovely LeFreak, there's something extra cosy about steam trains and Christmas!

Painshill is great!
We enjoyed the Watercress Line too.
