The Polar Express Train Ride, Birmingham

The Polar Express, Birmingham
runs from 22 November – 22 December 2019.

You’ve read the book … you’ve seen the film … and now you can have the experience! That’s right, it’s time to grab your pyjamas!

The young, and of course the young at heart, can board The Polar Express Train Ride at Birmingham Moor Street Station and let their imagination transport them to the sights and sounds of this classic Christmas story.

The excitement begins on arrival at the station where the steam train awaits. Get your Golden Ticket checked by the conductor and once onboard the train, the dancing chefs will show you to your seats. Enjoy hot chocolate and chocolate chip cookies as the adventure comes to life through theatrical staging of scenes from the book.

Shh, listen up … is that Santa you can hear getting on the train? Yes! Santa will join you for the journey home handing out Christmas gifts to the guests, and you can sing your favourite Christmas carols all the way back to Moor Street.

Once back at the station, the children can meet the characters and have photos taken in front of the steam train ride.

This magical train ride is run by Vintage Trains and all the information and booking details can be found here.

Parking in Birmingham city centre

As the song goes: “It’s the most wonderful time of the year …”, however the lead-up to Christmas can also be a headache for people driving in to the city centre. Tourists, theatre-goers and shoppers flood in to Brum throughout November and December, and the result can be traffic chaos!

If you’re driving in to the city and wanting somewhere to park, then one option is to head for B4 Car Park on Weaman Street.   Conveniently situated just off the A38(M), once parked it’s only an eleven minute walk to Moor Street Station.
