Although bookings are coming in fast, there is still space to see Santa, especially on the weekend on 7th & 8th December. There is also room on the two following Saturdays but the Sundays are filling up.
Each child gets a good quality present and the family can enjoy a winter train ride, or rides on the Gallopers roundabout and the children's rides. The Miniature Railway will be running too!
See our Events page for more details and book online and we will be in touch very quickly with a time to see Santa!
We hope to see you!

With the 2013 season at a close, Hollycombe's volunteers are busy getting ready for this year' Christmas openings on the 7/8, 14/15 & 21/22 December.
Visits to Santa must be pre-booked and you can do this via our online booking pages – click the 'Buy Tickets Online' button. We will then email you with your time to see Santa on the day you request.
Visitors not wanting to see Santa may come along on any of these open days and pay a reduced entry on the day. Gates open at 10.00am and we close at 4.00pm.
Please note that we will only be operating the Quarry Railway, Miniature 'Garden' Railway, Steam Gallopers and some of the children's rides. We do not operate any other rides due to winter maintenance.
Keep an eye on our website for further information as it happens.

Hollycombe will be open for the very popular Halloween Fairground at Night, but please note – not during the day!
Gates opne at 6pm with rides between 7 & 10pm. It's bound to be busy, so come early and beat the queues at the admission desk.

Hollycombe's ever popular Fairground at Night evenings start on Saturday 14th September and run for six weeks until Saturday 19th October.
The fun starts at 7.00pm until 10.00pm, though the gates open at 6.00pm so you can grab a quick bite to eat before it all happens!
There is nothing as magical as a steam fair at night, so come along and join us and watch as dusk settles into night on the first few evenings. The lights will be on, and the sounds, smells and sights intensify as it gets dark.
We will be running the Quarry Railway on some of these evenings, but which ones is not guaranteed.
The last two (12th & 19th October) have our popular Halloween Theme, so dress up for the evening. Pleas enote that our free return tickets are not valid on the Halloween evenings.
We look forward to seeing you. Oh, we are still open during the day on Sundays until 13th October.

Building on last year’s successful event, this weekend is due to have all kinds of models and modellers, with railway layouts, fairground models, miniature traction engines, and more!
