Our cafe and gift shop

Who doesn't love a little shop - full of trinkets and treasures that help you hold on to the magical memories made on your day out at our museum. Add a relaxing coffee and a slice of cake - lovely!

Ours is very newly refurbished and is a treasure trove of gifts and goodies that changes with the seasons. From pocket money treats and old fashioned sweets to painted canal ware and original prints. As well as some lovely crafts and modern takes on museum memorabilia. Plus, you'll find a comprehensive selection of canal books, guides and maps - well, we are the National 'Waterways' Museum after all...

When it's time to take the weight off your feet head to the ground floor. There you'll find our coffee shop with a range of tasty treats to tempt you...


You'll find seasonal hot and cold drinks, as well as a selection of delicious cakes and sweet treats. Plus the all important ice cream! You can enjoy them in the café or, on a sunny day, take a seat outside to relax and do a spot of gongoozling!
