On Sunday Matthew took Nathan and James to The National Railway Museum in York to have a ride on the Santa’s Christmas Steam Adventure. We had all been sent tickets to go but as Callum was poorly Saturday night I thought it best we stay at home. Had we gone as planned last weekend it would have all been OK but that’s a whole different story which includes us missing our time.
I love The National Railway Museum and have been many times when I was younger, and the boys are the same as they are huge train fans, (I think they get it from their Grandad). Here are a few pictures we took last week (when we didn’t get to ride the steam adventure).
The boys and Matthew had a fabulous time on Sunday, Nathan is just at the right age for believing anything he is told and the biggest thing for him has been about Santa, he loves the whole story and is getting ever so excited about him coming down our chimney very soon.
Tickets are priced at £7.50 a child and £5 per adult, adults do get a free drink and mince pie with their ticket and children receive a gift from Santa too. I would book to avoid disappointment as both weekends when we have been the adventure has been fully booked up. You can book tickets online. Also ensure you arrive in plenty of time and not like us the first weekend we tried or else you may miss your train ride.
