Under a canopy of new decorations in Queensgate, the spectacular locomotive is just part of the experience Queensgate is offering this year – trough to Christmas Eve. At the Christmas Craft Station, the magic begins when the clock strikes on the half hour.

Guests will be greeted by the Seasonal Station Master and his merry elves, Pippin and Noel the train driver, then it’s off to Platform 42 where the fun starts.

The sound of festive songs will ring out and the Christmas Crew will help parents, guardians and children to wish the Magic Train to work – whisper a wish and the rest will be revealed!

There will be a variety of activities from Christmas card making to making your own 3D Polar Express Train – and of course all children are invited to write a letter to Santa.
