Early Bird sessions run 9.00am – 10.00am aimed at those who have additional needs who would benefit from a low sensory offer. During these sessions the space will be adapted. Please call 024 7623 7521 to book or for further enquiries (weekdays only).

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, the sleigh is uniquely nostalgic. Its original mechanics and fixtures have been maintained but unchanged since the 60s - they don't make them like this anymore!


Children £5 / accompanying adult (up to two adults per child) £1.50. Entry fee includes a gift per child.
Adult (without gift) £4
Adult (with gift) £5
