3. All aboard the vintage sleigh ride
When: Everyday, up to 23rd Dec Where: Coventry Transport Museum
It’s time to go back in time to when Santa didn’t have a SatNav, on a vintage sleigh ride at Coventry Transport Museum. Little kids and big kids will enjoy sitting in the sleigh as it takes you on a journey to the North Pole to meet Santa and the chance to explore Museum’s Winter Wonderland. The famous sleigh ride has been going in Coventry for 60 years and has been lovingly restored thanks to the support of local businesses.
4. Treats & Tipples at Dhillon’s Brewery Christmas Village
When: Everyday, 12 – 9pm Where: Broadgate, Coventry City Centre
Looking for the perfect festive foodie experience in Coventry? Take a trip to the city centre where Christmas chalets have been set up, offering a choice of delicious food and drinks. Local brewery Dhillons will be there selling their craft beers and IPAs, plus there’s the Real Yorkshire Pudding Wrap Company, and a delicious doughnut stand also selling Unicorn White Hot Chocolate. What doesn’t sound good about all of that?
We love being based in Coventry, the City of Culture 2021!
