Please note: due to the current Covid-19 coronavirus situation, Tunnel Tots is currently suspended.

Check back here or on social media for updates.

We hope to be able to welcome you back for stories and songs on board soon.

In the meantime, we're still sharing a story virtually every Monday morning at 10am over on our Facebook page.

Join us there for Virtual Tunnel Tots!

Our Tunnel Tots boat runs every Monday at 10am.

Our popular Tunnel Tots boat operates every Monday throughout the year (including bank holidays) and is designed for under fives with their parents or carers. Older siblings are welcome to come along in the holidays, but as the trip is aimed at pre-school children we suggest any families without under fives would probably enjoy our Little Skippers sessions instead.

Join us for a 20 minute boat trip where we will share stories and songs led by our volunteers as we sail along. You might be sailing out onto the open canal or heading underground into our tunnels! If you want to know which way a trip is heading this week, you can get in touch with us by phone or email on Monday mornings from 9am.

Afterwards, join us in the Gongoozler where there will be colouring and puzzles for the toddlers to enjoy. Hot and cold drinks and snacks will be available to purchase from 10.30am - 11.30am (cash only); please notes that during our low season (January - February) the kitchen will be closed and not serving meals.
