Poor Arthur Gaunt has to work over Christmas!

This year his colleagues, Duffer the chef and Alice the engineer are inviting families to surprise Arthur with some festive cheer.

Venture back in time with this fun family interactive experience. Families will learn about the Bridge, solve clues to help find the gifts to give to Arthur and then visit the Engine Rooms to wish him a happy Christmas.

Pre-booking is essential.
