5 places to meet Santa in the West Midlands & Coventry

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas...

What better way to treat the kids than with a visit to the big man himself, Santa Claus. 

Don’t worry though, you don’t need to head to the north pole, simply grab your Group Day Saver and head to any of the great locations below...

1 - Sea Life Birmingham (20th November - 24th December)

As if seeing over 2000 amazing sea creatures wasn’t enough, now you can see another special guest too! After marvelling at everything from sharks to sea otters, you and your child can enter Santa’s grotto for a chat and a gift to take home.

Find out more and reserve your place now at the Sea Life website.

2 - Coventry Transport Museum (4th - 23rd December)

It’s one thing meeting Santa, but how about a ride in his sleigh too?! 

You’ll start your journey at one of Coventry’s most well-loved attractions, the Transport Museum. Home to all sorts of amazing vehicles, and now Santa’s very own sleigh! Then you’ll make your way through a winter wonderland to meet and ride with jolly old Saint Nick himself.
