Christmas Candyland-Festive Family Boat Trips

Why take the kids to Lapland to see Santa this Christmas when they can visit him by boat in his underground grotto deep in the Dudley Caverns?

December 1st-23rd at Dudley Canal & Canal Trust

Just imagine your children’s faces as they visit Santa on a magical illuminated journey that truly brings the festive season to life with fun and excitement. It’s a dramatically different way to get into the festive spirit. There’ll be music, our famous funny family show and, of course, gifts for all the children.

Our trips to see Santa are always very popular and places are limited, so early booking is strongly advised.
