Take the family on a festive Polar Express railway ride and overnight stay in York from £129pp this Christmas season

Kids cost just £103.20 each for the experience, meaning a family of four will pay £464.40 for the two-day trip.

Based on the 2004 film where a young boy embarks on a magical adventure to the North Pole, kids can enjoy Christmas carols on board and are invited to wear their pyjamas onboard to get cosy.

Fans of the book can listen to a live reading of the Polar Express, with jokes and games from the conductor and train staff.

Hot chocolate and cookies are included during the ride, before meeting Santa himself, who has gifts of a silver bell from his sleigh for the kids.

Taking place in York, the two-day trip also includes return coach travel across England depending on where you need to be picked up, as well as an overnight stay at a three-star hotel with breakfast and dinner included.

The rooms range from a twin room to a family room, so everyone can pile in after a long day to the North Pole.

Families can even visit York, which will be decked out with Christmas lights and decorations – the perfect time to go Christmas shopping.

Dates for the two-night trip are available throughout November and December, but you’ll have to be quick with the popular experience often selling out.

Other exciting train experiences in the UK include The Northern Belle, once owned by Orient Express, and called “Britain’s Most Luxurious Train”.

On board, guests can enjoy glasses of champagne, decadent breakfasts and an afternoon tea, served to your seat.

You can even stay the night on a converted train with Airbnb, one of the quirkiest staycation options this autumn.
