East Anglian Railway Museum

Day Out With Thomas and Santa

This event is now fully booked, and no on-the-door tickets will be available.

We are sorry if you have missed the chance to visit us this Christmas, but demand has been exceptional and as a result we have reached the capacity of the Museum site on advance bookings alone.

We appreciate the disappointment this means for those who have not been able to purchase tickets and as a gesture of goodwill we have opened our booking site for Easter now with a special discount that reduces the price by around 25%. For more details, see the event page.

Please do feel free to contact our visitor reception if you have any queries.
