Visit Santa! Vintage Sleigh Ride and Winter Wonderland

About

This Christmas make family memories to cherish!

Wander through a magical winter wonderland of festive activities and snowy scenes before taking a ride on an enchanting vintage sleigh, pulled by two trusty reindeer. Your next stop? Lapland. Meet Santa, tell him your Christmas wishes, receive a magic key and collect your gift from our elf's toy shop.

After 60 years at the Co-op department store, Santa's Sleigh ride moved to Coventry Transport Museum and families can once again enjoy the magic and tradition of a visit to Santa on this extraordinary vintage ride. An experience like no other!

So, what's new for 2019?

- A walk-through winter wonderland

- A new toy shop experience

- Revised pricing structure

- Reduced admission into the museum for those who want to 'make a day of it'
