Santa with his helpers aboard the King Arthur

With his sleigh and reindeers ready for action tonight, Santa has been taking an alternative form of transport whilst enjoying short breaks from his busy schedule.

For the last few days he has been offering tours of the Gloucester and Sharpness Canal on the King Arthur – a vessel more accustomed to Gloucester Docks than Lapland.

Dozens of people have been enjoying the Santa Cruises, run by the Gloucester Waterways Museum.

During the 45-minute cruises, which end today, children sing festive songs and are encouraged to look out for signs of Father Christmas before he lands on the roof and hands out Christmas presents to them.
