THE POLAR EXPRESS™ Train Ride at Wensleydale Railway

Event Update: 22nd October

It is with great sadness that we have cancelled THE POLAR EXPRESS™ Train Ride at Wensleydale for 2020.

We have worked tirelessly to provide a Covid secure event for your families to enjoy, which we were confident we had achieved. Now, however, as a result of consultation with local authorities following the introduction of the new 3 tier system, it has become very clear that a large number of our guests will be unable to travel with us due to households being unable to socialise together, or only being able to undertake essential travel.
We understand how disappointing this will be for you and your families, but we hope you will want to look forward to a better 2021 and will join us for your magical journey next year.

We appreciate that there may be many questions and we will endeavour to answer them as soon as we can, but it may take up to 5 working days to respond to any enquiries or questions.

If you have booked tickets already you will receive an email detailing the options available.


Join us at THE POLAR EXPRESS™ Yorkshire for a magical Christmas Experience. This Christmas experience is unlike any other. Book your THE POLAR EXPRESS™ tickets today. Wensleydale Railway sees the return of the hugely popular THE POLAR EXPRESS™ Train Ride in Yorkshire.

Your journey begins just like the 2004 motion picture when THE POLAR EXPRESS™ will pick you up at Leeming Bar station to take you to the North Pole. You will get to meet the characters from the film including the conductor, the singing chefs, the hobo and of course the main man himself Father Christmas. You and your family, hopefully dressed in PJs, will experience a fun filled theatrical adventure as you make your way to the North Pole. Throughout your journey, you may tangle with the caribou and other magical happenings, as you have the original story of THE POLAR EXPRESS™ told to you by the singing Chefs. Don’t forget to have a bite of your cookie and authentic hot chocolate before arriving at the North Pole to meet Santa Claus. Santa will join you on board and, if you are on the nice list, hand you your first gift of Christmas, a Silver Sleigh Bell just as in the motion picture we all love. You will get to speak with Santa and he may even sign your THE POLAR EXPRESS™ book which is available to purchase with your THE POLAR EXPRESS™ tickets.

Once you arrive back at the station your journey is not at its end. Next you can write a letter to Santa, check if you are on the naughty and nice list and buy a little souvenir of your experience. THE POLAR EXPRESS™ Yorkshire at Wensleydale Railway is truly the most magical Christmas experience.
