Tunbridge Wells on track for yet more festive fun with the Christmas land train

    The Santa Express

    The Santa Express will be bringing festive cheer to Tunbridge Wells again this year with an earlier arrival date, meaning shoppers and visitors have more time to climb aboard and enjoy the ride.

    The service will run between The Pantiles and the Assembly Hall, via the High Street, with passengers able to embark and disembark at either end of the route.

    It will be free, with donations requested for the Tunbridge Wells charity The Pickering Cancer Drop In Centre.

    Local firm Markerstudy Leisure, which is providing the Santa Express, has confirmed that it will run from 10am to 4pm on the weekends of November 19 and 20, November 26 and 27, December 3 and 4 and December 10 and 11.

    The land train will also operate every day from December 17 to Christmas Eve inclusive.

    The Commercial Director at Markerstudy Leisure, Nick Moore, said: “It’s great that once again the Santa Express will be running through the town. It will help Christmas shoppers get around the town more easily, and will also promote some festive giving for a worthy local charity.”

    It’s the fourth year the train has operated, with an average of 10,000 people being carried each Christmas.
