When on 23th dec train was very cold and damp the table was all wet from the condensation on the windows they was also covered in mould. Train was very poorly decorated 3 year old could have done better. Didn't get the little drink as advertised as they had lost there licence that morning. The elfs were not funny my child kept asking why they keeping running in the back. One lady elf was checking our tickets and she said I dont want adult ones they are CRAP. I couldn't believe she said that on a train packed full of kids not very professional. Definitely wont be going again.

Avoid this very disappointing have being on the Kirklèes one for the last three years , no Christimas atmosphere,no organisation the elf did not have a clue what they were doing , running in back to get presents.The elf told the kids the minute they got on the train Santa was coming wih a presant , presents not aimed at child's age , my 11 year old gor a my little pony stationary set.No information given as to what was happening though out the journey and the train was stationary more than moving . Elf sang two songs but didn't know the words!! Several kids on train complaining how bored they were. Very disappointed and worse Christmas trip I have experienced in 11 years.This trip was like something they had put together in 5 minutes !!!

Visited as a family of 6 at a cost of £84 what a complete waste of money. The train goes to the end of the line Which is not far and then just back and forward. While Santa hands out some poor quality presents. I certainly will not be going back.
