My children really enjoyed this as their Santa visit this year, the pantomime bit was very funny & the loved having Santa come to see them on the boat. This was something different & worth the journey. I can't rate the gift given as they are not opening them until Christmas Day, but I recommend this trip. Carole : )

Brilliant day, we went here as a party of 12 but wouldn't of needed to as all the people on the boat were up for Christmas. The staff were very friendly and deserve a medal because it can get a little chilly in the tunnels. I would highly recommend this trip and will certainly spread the word. Well done dudley... More

Went as a family with 2 children 6 and 4 for the santa canal trip. Brilliantly organised from start to finish. Prices were very reasonable throughout. Children loved the trip, would recommend to all.... Some so called top Christmas attractions could learn a lot from this experience.. Thanks for a great day.

A wonderful experience! Fun, historical and the staff very friendly! Santa came onto the canal boat and spoke to all the children along with a photo. My boys thought it was a magical day and the small pantomine was really funny. Really recommend people with famillies to visit.

I've just got home with some very happy children, they got a boat trip through caves , a pantomime, a visit to santa with a great present, and a christmas carol singalong, all wrapped up in a festive one hour bundle. Not forgetting the hot drink and mince pie when you get off the barge. So much better than a... More

The trip was well worth it and it was superb to see the Christmas lights and reindeer! The santa trips will be amazing. It was a... More

Initially we just went because we thought it would be a nice boat trip. But it was much better than that. Our guide was both interesting and entertaining, his enthusiasm for his job was infectious. Would definitely recommend, but prepare to look silly in a hard hat!

thought a canal boat trip would be nice, questioned what could be enjoyable about a tunnel trip....but how wrong was I....the tunnel led to caverns and silen pools what an amazing place, our guide was fab too......just enough information, but conveyed his knowledge and passion throughout the trip. The Trust is funded by donations - again on gift aiding you... More
