You may have seen him arriving for the Diss lights switch-on on their vintage fire engine, but Santa is steaming back into Bressingham Steam Museum as part of their ever popular special Christmas days.

Rudolph is away on his holidays so Santa decided to use his old faithful Steam Car for the journey to Norfolk.

Sparing time from his very busy seasonal schedule, Father Christmas himself has been at Bressingham on selected days this month and things get really festive from December 21-24.

He and his wife and elves will be at the museum on all four days.

This year a visit to see Santa includes a ride on the steam train on the Fen Railway for everyone and rides on the fantastic Victorian Gallopers are included too. Those up to the age of 12 will get a present from the man himself too.

The Dads Army Exhibition has been decorated, offering a chance to see Walmington on Sea at Christmas, and a children’s entertainer will be in the village hall.

All days have entry from 2pm to 5pm and close no earlier than 6pm; December 22 and 23 have an additional 12pm to 2pm entry slot, while Christmas Eve has an 11am to 2pm entry slot as they close earlier. Booking is advisable as ticket numbers are limited. Advance entry prices are £11.55, children (3-12) £14.85, under-3s requiring a present £7.15. Full details at Bressingham Steam Museum
