Santa has found some time in his busy schedule to come and visit the National Waterways Museum on their barge Sabrina 5 this Christmas and he would love you to come and visit him. Starting on 7th December, Santa and his friends will provide a 30 minute experience for little ones and their carers in groups. Listen to Santa tell a Christmas story and then come and collect a present from the man himself.
The 30 minute sessions will run at 11am, 1.30pm and 2.30pm on selected weekends in December.

Saturday and Sunday
7th, 8th, 14th, 15th, 21st, 22nd December

Monday 23rd December

Tickets cost £10 (1 Child and up to 1 Adult) and include entry to the museum on that day where you can take part in Victorian Crafts and follow our Christmas tree trail. We also have a wonderful range of festive drinks and cakes available in our tea rooms so relax in the warm after your Santa experience and watch the ice skaters outside in Orchard Square.

Please ensure you arrive at least 15 minutes before your ticket time slot and leave plenty of time to park if you are driving as Gloucester Quays can get very busy during December. Additional adults will be able to pay for standard Museum entry on the day or use their annual pass to get in free. Alternatively they can wait in the cafe which is open to all.
