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’


Santa’s Top Tip #1 It gets very busy as it gets near to Christmas so avoid the queues by coming to see Santa as soon as you can.

Santa’s Top Tip #2 Remember we are open in term time which is an ideal quieter time to bring pre-schoolers to enjoy their visit.
