Travel back in time to festive 19th century Sailortown to meet Father Christmas in his secret grotto at the Museum of London Docklands. Tell Santa your Christmas wishes and receive a special gift, and you can also get a photograph of your child and Father Christmas (for an additional cost). Leave time to look around the museum and see their glittering Cheapside Hoard: London's Lost Jewels display, a unique collection of priceless late 16th and early 17th century jewels and gemstones.

 

About Museum of London Docklands
