    Santa Trips

    Sorry, but Santa needs to look after his Elf this year! But look at our Christmas Special trips instead (below)

    Christmas Special

    A hugely enjoyable seasonal trip to Widbrook and back in our Christmas decorated boat, with mulled wine (for adults), fruit juice (for children) and warmed minced pies for all! (Under 5s not provided with catering.)

    Please note that this replaces the usual Santa trip due to the Covid situation. This is NOT a Santa trip – sadly, Santa is not able to make an appearance on our boat this year (for Covid reasons) – and there are no gifts for children. We hope you’ll be able join us for a bit of seasonal jollity on board.
