Gunwharf Express sets course for The North Pole this Christmas

Posted: 6th November 2018

Following the success of last year’s Enchanted Narnia attraction, Gunwharf Quays has announced a brand new immersive Christmas experience for 2018 supported by Wave 105.

Visitors are invited to bring the magic of Christmas to life and board the Gunwharf Express from Saturday 24th November to Monday 24th December. Be transported back in time, with festive decorations adorning a traditional Victorian street, ticket office and railway station at the waterfront shopping destination.

Once on the platform, take a seat on the Gunwharf Express and enjoy a magical simulated ride through snow-capped mountains and stunning icy scenery to arrive at the North Pole. Meet Santa’s cheeky talking reindeer, enjoy festive stories and songs at the Elves Workshop, create your very own Christmas decoration to take home and meet Father Christmas, who will gift each and every child with a hand-wrapped present.

The attraction will be brought to life with live actors, visual effects and specially selected music designed to immerse visitors in a dreamlike Christmas wonderland.  

Colin Wilding, General Manager at Gunwharf Quays, said: “The Christmas shopping season is one of our busiest and we welcome thousands of shoppers looking for a truly festive shopping experience. This year, we are delighted to be hosting another fantastic immersive Christmas attraction at Gunwharf Quays, supported by Wave 105. Last year, Enchanted Narnia was a huge hit with our visitors and we hope this year’s Gunwharf Express will be even bigger and better!”
