Arrived for a special occasion at the station a few minutes late, train was still there. My daughter asked the station master to wait a few seconds for her mum to come down the stairs with a disability. The station master refused and blew the whistle in front of my daughter and then laughed about our situation to another colleague. Emailed the marketing manager Michael Stokes who lied and stated he was the station master and refused to do anything for us. Disgusting racist behaviour for no reason. Poor customer service and would not recommend going to this station for special events as last years was also poor

I love the Great Central Railway, I've been a fan since my daughter was very young. So many lovely trips and memories however feel incredibly disappointed in this long awaited visit to Santa. With a poor review I feel I should go into detail for future experience goers to make an informed decision.

Some positives but the overall feeling is we've been ripped off. Where was the magic of it all?

Incredibly lovely staff and Santa himself was a happy, jolly fellow but we paid extra money for the 'Santa Deluxe' rather than just the 'Santa Special' with a description of more time with Santa, more refreshments and an upgraded gift.

As we sat down, 2 crackers for 3 of us on the table (?) along with and a price list for snacks (hot, soft and alcoholic drinks, crisps, confectionary) and very reasonably priced we thought.

Staff brought a large white chocolate cookie for daughter with a choice of fruit shoot. Appreciated it, although she doesn't like white chocolate.

Adults received a mince pie and choice of a plastic cup of orange juice or a plastic shot glass of Sherry.

When he came through, Santa was there, very quick chat and gone with about a minute. Having supplied name and age with reserved seating I expected he would have been given at least that information to personalise the 'deluxe' experience, but sadly not. He came back for a photo later for no more than 2 minutes. Again, Santa himself was a jolly chap, but blink and you miss it.

Daughter was excited for her gift and likes it so that's the main thing there although they cost £5. Hate to think what the lesser gift would've been on the standard experience.

Between Santa rushing through and then popping back for them to take a photo (that we were not given - maybe we were meant to buy it? Nobody said so we don't know) there was a balloon modeller. She was friendly and at least interacted for a couple of minutes while making a balloon animal.

It was a 'nice' hour, don't get me wrong, but for 2 adults and 1 child the £129 cost seemed totally ridiculous for what we received. Adults charged £15 maximum I would understand. £42 for a mince pie and cheap orange juice.

Overall, great people, rubbish experience. Had much much better Santa experiences for much less. Unfortunately, really cannot recommend and this saddens me as we usually love the railway.

Boxing day lunch on a 1960's railway carriage. First class seats were very comfortable, tables were nicely laid and decorated. Pre ordered lunch, consisted of three courses. Hot, tasty and well presented. Only complaint was Brussels sprouts were overdone. Bottles of wine from £19.00 upwards, but soft drinks, beers and cider also available

The train guard explained where we were going and some of the history of the train and stations. It's a fairly short train trip, so stops at each station and a resevoir.

At Loughborough Station there are refreshments,and a small museum. Steep steps from road down to platform but there is a small lift avaliable

We have been visiting the GCR on it’s Christmas Day Luncheon train for many years. It used to be a top notch afternoon out and one we always enjoyed. Over recent years we have witnessed a slow, continual decline in the quality of the experience. Some issues may seem quite minor, but collectively they make for an increasingly disappointing experience. The most glaringly obvious issue is a lack of staff, and those that were there there were basically kids who had little idea of their required duties. The table appeared to be set quite nicely at first glance, but had really poor quality crackers on them and the carriage was quite chilly, despite it not being that cold outside. The train departed promptly at 1:00 p.m. but it was almost 40 minutes before our starter of a thin slice of cheese on a piece of burnt sourdough bread arrived with a couple of very sad looking salad leaves. The train stops on Swithland viaduct, an ideal spot to have your soup, except we had not even had our starter….! Next we were offered a cold, stale bread roll that was so dry it disintegrated before you could butter it. The soup finally arrived but my wife could not eat it due to an allergy. We had no advanced notice of what the soup would be. The “main event” eventually arrived and we were presented with a single slice of turkey (more like a steak than a sliced roast) with some lukewarm gravy poured over it. The vegetables were really disappointing, no roast potatoes, just a tiny piece of burnt Rösti, (again containing onion which my wife could not eat) almost raw, dry parsnips, and a few soggy sprouts and carrots.
The Christmas pudding portion was tiny and again served with a tepid brandy sauce. A cheese plate came which was very generous indeed, in fact we are pretty sure it was actually meant for a table of 4 not 2, in any case far too much to eat, so a waste really. We tried to order a glass of port to accompany the cheese, but were told “sorry we haven’t got any” We were given a tiny, cold, mince pie and half a cup of coffee as the train arrived back at Loughborough. They came to collect payment for the drinks, (£35 for a bottle of white wine!) and had forgotten to bring us the bill. I was asked how I’d like to pay and said cash, but he proceeded to use the card machine anyway and looked at me blankly when I gave him real money!
No petit fours were offered and no hot drink refills as there used to be.
The start of the meal was extremely slow and the end very rushed as they struggled to get everything out on time.
I don’t like giving poor reviews and am mindful of the difficult times many attractions have had post Covid, but when you charge a hundred Pounds each for lunch (plus drinks) I think it is not unreasonable to expect a good experience. The disappointment is that we have witnessed the gradual decline as in previous years this has been an outstanding afternoon, but has now deteriorated to what can only be described as mediocre at best.
Sadly we will not be returning and I would not recommend this experience.

Ive just come back from attending the winter ‘wonderlights’ train tonight and unfortunately it was terrible. I honestly feel like it was such a massive waste of money and need to say something.

Firstly for some reason, a decision was made to try to cram everyone into two carriages. We had paid for a table seat with two blank seats so we can enjoy a more intimate experience so why are we now being told to go in with other people? We decided to remain as per our booking in coach D but were told that the lights inside the carriage will remain on. Again, doesn’t make sense and wasn’t explained.

Onto the actual journey itself, well I’ve seen more lights at my local petrol station. Where were all these wonder lights? I saw the various wooded areas and fields being lit up by the train so was that it? No decorations or displays?
You announce a ‘Christmas Fair’ coming up on the right hand side which sounded promising, but it’s just an abandoned carousel all shut down. What is there to look at?
Reindeers grazing on the field was announced next; I counted about 6 again not lit up, just strewn across a hillside.

On the return journey, we pulled up to Rothley station and was told that we would remain there for 20 minutes. Feel free to take pictures came over the radio…..of what may I ask? The one reindeer on the platform? The elves tried their best to liven the mood with a rendition of holly jolly Christmas.

We were still wondering when the hot drinks trolley was going to make an appearance given the menus on the table. Needless to say this never appeared either. Back on the train and we were home, finally.

£50 to sit on a train and stare at some woodland vaguely lit up by the light coming off the train.

Sorry but what a con, I won’t be returning.

The Great Central Railway Santa Delux is an excellent way to spend a day with a 4 year old. Mr and Mrs Santa Clause and eveyone at the railway made our day really special. My train mad 4 yr old had a great time.

My family have enjoyed this Christmas treat in the past but I was very disappointed this year. The trip did not seem good value for the price of the tickets and the price of drinks seemed extortionate to me costing over £26 for the five of us to have 1 drink. I understand that the railway has to raise money but at this moment I thought it was just, too much.
I certainly won’t be booking again next year.

We had an ok experience on the GCR. Been on this trip 2 times with my older child and thought we would recreate the experience for my younger child.
The Loughborough station was really nice. Lots of little stalls and decorated really well.
We went for the Santa Special. Santa was nice and the kids loved this aspect and we got some nice photos.
The train unfortunately was freezing! No heating (which was on the last 2 times we have been on the train) and for young children this was poor. The staff had mince pies and my child asked for one. He was told no you can’t have one as I gave you a candy! We gave our mince pie to our child, there was not even an option to purchase additional mince pies or offer a charitable donation for an additional mince pie. I just felt it was quite rude.
We love going on trains but this will be the last Santa service we take, which is a shame as it was a regular activity we did yearly pre COVID.

Took our three year old on the santa train and we were blown away by how magical it was. Started with me getting us there an hour late - the staff were so kind and accommodating (many thanks to Andy in the ticket office and June on the platform), they got us on a later train, and truly saved Christmas.

Platform was done up beautifully and looked brilliant. Once on the train, it was an absolute delight - the train itself was done up so you felt like you were in a film, all of the staff were wonderful, the guy MC’ing our carriage was so attentive, let us know what was coming up next, Santas helpers about and chatting, magician spinning plates on a moving train really impressive - everyone was so sweet to my kid. Steam train is always a bit special but they truly made it the perfect trip.

We’ll be back, and not just for Santa, there are loads of things on worth checking out.
