Book a Canal Boat Holiday from Market Harborough and watch the Grand Union Canal light up with a Christmas illuminated boat procession at Stoke Bruerne's Waterways Museum.

Join in with the singing as the children of Stoke Bruerne Primary School sing some of our favourite carols.

To keep out the winter chill have some hot soup and roasted chestnuts or do some last minute Christmas shopping at the museum and other canal side gift shops.

For something a little bit different take a Santa Cruise along the Grand Union Canal.

Depart from The Boat Inn at Stoke Bruerne for a 1½ hour cruise through the famous Blisworth Tunnel to Blisworth where Santa will join the boat for the return journey.

There will be party games and music played during the cruise and each child will receive a present from Farther Christmas.

Housed in a restored corn mill the National Waterways Museum provides a great day out for families and canal enthusiasts, the museum's working models brings to life the unique 200 year old story of our waterways.
